These are the recommendations of a working group that was formed in February 2013 with a charge to examine works metadata with respect to fitness for purpose in the ORCID registry and utility to producers and consumers of such metadata. The group membership represented a good cross-section of the ORCID constituency, with publishers, metadata experts, academic libraries, service providers, identifier experts, etc. all contributing. Discussions were held in a series of 7 conference calls over approximately as many months, together with commentary posted to a project site between calls.
