201711 Research Impact Infrastructure
presentationposted on 06.12.2017, 13:04 by Neil Thakur, Richard Ikeda
NIH and ORCID are working together to broaden connections to the array of research and career data typically reported on CVs, and to enhance integrations with other systems using these data. This includes collaborating, along with other funders in the US and around the world, on the ORCID Reducing Burden and Improving Transparency (ORBIT) project to link researchers to their funding and other research and career activities using verified and structured data.
This will enable a stronger infrastructure to:
* Encourage development of better productivity measures to incentivize openness, rigor, and impact
* Enable tracking of the impact of investments in research and professional development through transparently-curated open data
* Support collaboration and networking services to build efficient and equitable markets for reviewers, collaborators, mentors, etc.
* Maintain researcher control of their own data and how it is used across platforms
*Reduce researcher burden when applying for funds and maintaining multiple profiles
