Three years after launching the ORCID Registry, we are excited to be releasing our third Public Data File. This file contains a snapshot of all public data in the ORCID Registry associated with an ORCID record that was created or claimed by an individual, over 1,600,000 records. ORCID publishes this file once per year under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal public domain dedication. This means that, to the extent possible under law, ORCID has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to the Public Data File. For more information on the file, see
