How does BerlinUP use the ORCID iD?

BerlinUP supports the use of ORCID iD for author identification. The four supporting institutions of BerlinUP—Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin—are each member of the ORCID Germany Consortium, which enables, among other things, the verification and curation of researchers' ORCID records.

We recommend that all authors and contributors of publications in BerlinUP Journals and BerlinUP Books provide their ORCID iD. If you do not yet have an ORCID iD, we recommend that you register for one at ORCID.

BerlinUP Books

The ORCID iDs of all authors involved are already requested in the book proposal for publication in BerlinUP Books. The ORCID iDs are indicated within the title of the published book and included in the metadata.

The inclusion of the ORCID iDs in the metadata schemes of the repositories of the participating institutions is in preparation.

BerlinUP Journals

The specification of an ORCID iD of authors in the publication platform Open Journals Systems used by us is optionally possible via a separate metadata field. In this case, the ORCID iD is displayed in the metadata view of published articles and linked to the corresponding ORCID record. However, these ORCID iDs are not yet verified.

The following additional functionalities can be provided by an additional plugin at the request of the journal editors:

  •     Verification of ORCID iDs with the consent of the authors
  •     Transmission of verified ORCID iDs to the German National Library as part of the mandatory submission process
  •     Enrichment of author profiles in BerlinUP Journals by importing ORCID records
  •     Export of publication data from BerlinUP Journals to ORCID Records

If the selected journal supports this functionality, authors will be given the option to link their ORCID account to their journal account when creating their user profile in order to synchronize the above-mentioned data with ORCID.
