I created an additional sub-field as I still wanted to capture email addresses, and ORCID isn't all that widely used here yet.

How is anyone storing an ORCiD in EPrints?

Out-of-the-box, EPrints has creators with a name component, and an id component.
The default name of this field is 'Email':

I was thinking or using it to store the ORCiD instead of the email address, but didn't know if any 'best practice' was emerging yet?
