National ORCID Centre 

The National ORCID Centre (NC ORCID) will be established in the first half of 2023 to support the implementation and effective use of the persistent indetifier ORCID iD in research, development and innovation in the Czech Republic.

The NC ORCID will operate under the National Centre for Persistent Identifiers (PID Centre), which is part of the National Library of Technology (NTK).

NC ORCID services

NC ORCID will provide your organisation with:

  1. coverage of ORCID fees from 2023-2028 from the CARDS project (NC ORCID reserves the right to change the level of support),
  2. access to the full features of the ORCID premium membership at a reduced fee – this is primarily the ability to use the integration of up to 5 different systems within a single institution (ORCID integration brings the ability to add and update information on ORCID profiles, when obtaining the consent of the ORCID iD owner), 
  3. the possibility to use the Affiliation Manager tool, which allows to easily add the affiliation of the respective organisation to the author profiles,
  4. priority administrative, technical and legal support from ORCID and NTK,
  5. a space to share experiences with the integration and use of ORCID in different systems.

Who can use the services of NC ORCID

NC ORCID services will be targeted at higher education institutions, research organisations and research funding agencies that integrate ORCID iD into their systems and support the widespread and effective use of this persistent identifier by researchers in the country.
