The first ORCID DE webinar is set to take place on Thursday, 27 April 2017 at 10:00 under the heading “ORCID – an introduction for research institutions”. The webinar is the first in a series of ORCID DE webinars that seek to provide support to research institutions in Germany with regard to administrative, technical and other issues.
The first webinar is designed for representatives from research institutions in Germany who are contemplating or planning to integrate ORCID – the Open Researcher and Contributor ID for identifying contributors – at their institution. In the first part of the webinar, Paul Vierkant, a staff member of the ORCID DE project, will give a general introduction to the role that ORCID can play at research institutions. In the second part, Britta Dreyer from the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology will present the ORCID Germany Consortium and explain the advantages of membership.
After the 20-minute webinar, participants will have the chance to ask the speakers questions during a live chat, and to discuss issues with other participants.
