Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Recognizing that the use of ORCID iDs and their associated metadata records—by authors, publishers, and others in the publishing ecosystem—has thus far been almost exclusively in the context of journals, ORCID contracted with Apex to explore the extent to which ORCID is used in book workflows and to make recommendations to promote and facilitate this.
In the context of virtual meetings with the ORCID in Books Community Working Group (CWG), it was determined that this could best be accomplished by two vehicles:
• A survey that could be sent out to a wide variety of recipients and which would contain questions that would be designed for systematic tabulation and analysis.
• A set of 25-some interviews with the CWG members and a carefully selected group of publishers and related organizations that could provide more wide ranging and nuanced insights.
