What does it mean for IOP to be a member of ORCID?

As part of IOP Publishing’s commitment to ensuring researchers get full credit for their work, IOP became a member of ORCID in August 2017, when IOP Publishing signed the Open Letter committing us to requiring ORCID iDs in the publishing process for our journals.

IOP’s ORCID integration was awarded four Collect and Connect badges: Authenticate, Collect, Display and Connect. This means we have achieved the minimum standard of implementation, ensuring the collection of ORCID IDs is efficient, adheres to best practices, and reduces the burden on researchers.
