Laurel L. Haak et al. have published "Using ORCID, DOI, and Other Open Identifiers in Research Evaluation" in Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics.
Here's an excerpt:
We describe how identifiers, such as ORCID iDs and DOIs, are being embedded in research workflows across science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics; how this is affecting data availability for evaluation purposes: and provide examples of evaluations that are leveraging identifiers. We also discuss the importance of provenance and preservation in establishing confidence in the reliability and trustworthiness of data and relationships, and in the long-term availability of metadata describing objects and their inter-relationships.
