ORCID will no longer support the RINGGOLD ID

Starting from 1 August 2023, the ORCID registry will no longer receive updates related to the unique RINGGOLD ID organization identifiers.

RINGGOLD IDs created after 1 August 2023 will no longer be processed by ORCID. The list of RINGGOLD ID identifiers already used by the ORCID registry will be maintained for the foreseeable future. However, as it will no longer be updated, the data will slowly become outdated.

Organisations using ORCID services are advised to:

  • use the ROR organisation identifier
  • convert existing organisation metadata into ROR where possible
