Spring 2018 Members Meeting Session: ORCID Reducing Burden and Improving Transparency (ORBIT) Project

ORBIT is a strategy to reduce investigator burden and improve funder efficiency through the use of persistent identifiers. ORBIT is a partnership between the NIH and ORCID that expands the ORCID data model to collect faculty profile information. The presentation described efforts to assign Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to grants – effectively creating a universal funding identifier with ORCID IDs in its metadata.
