​In 2014 Imperial College London became a member of ORCID.

A cross-College project was set up to issue all academic and research staff
with ORCID iDs, under the framework of the College’s Open Access Project.
The ORCID project identified 764 existing iDs linked to College staff and
created 3,226 new ones. Within seven weeks from ORCID creation, 1,155
academics had logged into their ORCID accounts and linked them to
Symplectic Elements, the College’s publication management system. Now that
the Jisc project has been completed, Imperial’s Open Access Project will
continue engagement with the academic community to encourage further uptake.


*​Comment: Only one third of researchers ​opted for ORCID from the initial
batch load!*
