XSDs and current state (all stable)

Tutorials

Changes from Version 2.1:

JSON

  • JSON enumerated types are now expressed in lowercase with dashes instead of underscores, matching the existing XML enums (ie JOURNAL_ARTICLE is now expressed as journal-article). This affects enums for visibility, locale, work types, contributor roles, citation types, external identifier relationship, funding types, peer review types, and peer review role

Activities external identifiers

  • Addition of common:external-id-normalized for work and peer-review identifiers. The common:external-id-normalized field is a transient, system generated field which expresses the identifier in a standard format that is used for grouping. In general, normalized identifiers trim extraneous text such as the identifier type or the expression of the identifier as a url. Additional normalization is done based on the rules of the identifier type and may include setting all alpha characters to lower case, or transforming spaces, dashes, periods and other characters that can be treated as equivalent. See the full normalization rules. Identifiers which can not be normalized will return a error message when reading them.

Affiliations

  • Addition of new affiliation sections: Distinction, Invited-position, Membership, Qualification, and Service in addition to the existing Education and Employment sections. For more information see Affiliations tutorial
  • Summary information now available for each section including affiliation source, role-title, department-name, dates, organization and external-ids
  • common:start-date of the year as a minimum is required when writing items
  • Addition of optional element common:url for recording links about the affiliation
  • Addition of optional element common:external-ids for recording identifiers for the affiliation
  • Disambiguated organization identifier is now required and must be a valid Ringgold, FundRef, or GRID identifier
  • Use of common namespace for common:department-name, common:role-title and common:organization

Research-resources

  • This new section of the ORCID record captures information about things that researchers use for their research which require a specific proposal process or credential to access, such as collections, equipment, infrastructure, and services. For more information see the Research-resource tutorial.

Works

  • work:journal-title field is returned with the work summary
  • Addition of common:external-id-normalized when reading works for normalized work identifiers
  • Addition of software to the list of supported work types
  • Use of common namespace for common:url replacing work:url and this field is now returned in the work summary

Fundings

  • Disambiguated organization identifier is now required and must be a valid Ringgold, FundRef, or GRID identifier
  • Use of common namespace for common:organization, replacing funding:organization
  • Use of common namespace for common:url replacing funding:url and this field is now returned in the funding summary

Peer-review

  • reviewer-role and review-type are returned with the peer-review summary
  • Disambiguated organization identifier is now required and must be a valid Ringgold, FundRef, or GRID identifier
  • Addition of common:external-id-normalized when reading peer-reviews for normalized peer-review identifiers
  • Addition of grant, contract, award, salary-award, and research-resource-proposal to supported subject types

[HOST] is the ORCID environment you are using

  • api.sandbox.orcid.org for the Member API on the ORCID Sandbox
  • pub.sandbox.orcid.org for the Public API on the ORCID Sandbox (/read-public scope only)
  • api.orcid.org for the Member API on the production ORCID Registry
  • pub.orcid.org for the Public API on the production ORCID Registry (/read-public scope only)

[ORCID] is the ORCID iD for the record.

[SECTION] can be one of the following:

  • activities
  • address
  • biography *
  • distinction
  • education
  • email *
  • employment
  • external-identifiers
  • funding
  • invited-position
  • keywords
  • membership
  • other-names
  • peer-review
  • person *
  • personal-details *
  • qualification
  • research-resource
  • researcher-urls
  • service
  • work

Notes:

  • biography, email, person and personal-details sections are read only
  • when reading and posting multiple works a maximum of 100 works can be accessed with a single call.
  • When searching by default a maximum of 100 results will be returned. The rows parameter can be used to increase the number or results, but only up to 200. The start parameter (integer pointing to the zero-based position of the first result to be returned) can be used to page through larger results sets. See Searching the API tutorial
