Stellenbosch University has implemented an integration with ORCID in 2016. By connecting clients’ ORCID IDs to their Stellenbosch University identities also store access to clients’ ORCID IDs, for the University to use in future integrations with ORCID, such as the institutional repository, SUNScholar.
The poster gives an overview of how the integration was set up. It will also give an overview of the numbers of clients who have connected their ORCID IDs to the integration, sorted by faculty and client category. A comparison between how many ORCID IDs exist at the different institutions of the South African ORCID Consortium is also included. Marketing holds a key to the success of the integration and therefore a summary and examples of marketing activities are listed. Lastly the poster addresses all the challenges which come with this project, for example effective communication across campus, software developments and other marketing strategies.
