ORCID and Grant DOIs: Engaging the Community to Ensure Openness and Transparency of Funding Information
This document is intended to encapsulate how identifiers for grantees and grants can enable better grantee tracking and funding reporting. It describes specific information flows from and into funder systems, explaining how funders can affect those flows by using ORCID or Crossref services in various combinations. It also proposes complementary actions to enable open research goals for other actors in the information flow, including ORCID, Crossref, researchers, and publishers.
It summarizes and extends discussions by the ORBIT Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Funder Working Group (FWG). Group members used this document to
comment on the draft, and have endorsed the recommendations for publication as part of the ORBIT project and for sharing with stakeholders.
