Faculty Activities Data: Telling Y(Our) Story

Announcing ORCID Exports

In collaboration with ORCID, Watermark is now able to sync publication data in Faculty Success with the ORCID database, enhancing the faculty experience.

A new feature called Data Share is available to users who have authenticated with ORCID. For faculty who enable Data Sharing, an automatic export of their publication data to ORCID will occur on a weekly basis.  Note that this export will only include publications with DOIs defined. This ensures that ORCID is always updated with any changes made to your Faculty Success profile.

To take advantage of this new feature, be sure to identify the DOI for your publications - those are the ones that will be included in the data share to ORCID.

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities ensuring that the researchers work is recognized.

The Import from ORCID feature is still available on the Publications summary page. It can be used to transfer existing ORCID data into a Faculty Success profile before enabling the export for a specific faculty member. Do be aware that ORCID does not provide the full list of authors on imported publication citations.

Proxy and delegate users have the ability to enable the Data Sharing export for faculty members who have already authenticated with ORCID through Faculty Success.

Connecting ORCID with  Faculty Success
To use the ORCID Export feature, you will need to authorize the connection with your ORCID account. This is accomplished from the Import tool on the Publications activity screen. Navigate to Publications from the Activities top menu item, and from there, click on the Import tool. Choose ORCID as the Third Party service. You'll see a link to Authenticate your ORCID account after selecting that service.  See this Watermark how-to instruction to connect your ORCID account with Faculty Success:
