JISC has released the Institutional ORCID Implementation and Cost-Benefit Analysis Report .
Here's an excerpt:
In May 2014, Jisc and ARMA commissioned eight HEI ORCID Pilot projects to support the broader use of ORCID unique researcher identifiers (ORCID iDs) in UK higher education. Information Power Ltd and Research Consulting Ltd were commissioned to prepare this report on the results of the eight pilot projects in order to:
- Inform how ORCID is implemented in UK HEIs;
- Enable institutional managers to build a business case for ORCID adoption in HEIs; and
- Encourage wider adoption of ORCID IDs
The report is based on semi-structured interviews with the Jisc-ARMA ORCID pilot projects and other research community stakeholders conducted either face-to-face or through telephone/Skype interviews, attendance at the September 2014 and January 2015 pilot project workshops and desk-based review of other relevant evidence.
