Mabbett’s goal is to expand the benefits of ORCIDs, which are unique
scholar identifiers, by giving academics a means of linking Wikipedia works
they have contributed to or that mention them to their ORCID IDs. At the
same time, *the ORCID integration project will give Wikipedia visitors a
way to learn more about the writers or subjects of the articles they are
reading*, via the individuals’ linked ORCID pages, in order to know the
qualifications of the sources their information is coming from.
