[EP-tech] ORCID Support Advance Update

I think Will was saying that it works the way it does at the moment because that is how ORCID has specified it has to work for them to approve the plugin to access their systems. I'd agree that it doesn't seem the most useful and hopefully there is some discussion and agreement to be made with ORCID.
Perhaps there is some room in the system for identifying where the stored ORCID ID is a locally validated one versus a third party value? E.G. human readable interface shows the green icon for validated and a grey one for 3rd party import / locally unverified, and a similar flag value in any of the machine interfaces?
Maybe Will can expand upon the resolutions EPS are considering?
I'll raise my suggestion with the UK ORCID consortium folks at Jisc in case they can raise it with ORCID or already have other ideas.

Subject: Re: [EP-tech] ORCID Support Advance Update
thank you for the new version and fixing two issues thereby.
I don't understand your argumentation for not using a DOI lookup during the import from ORCID process. The data in Crossref which includes some ORCIDs will already have been authorized by the author(s), otherwise the ORCIDs would not be part of Crossref data. Thereby, I see no reason that the users have to authorize again in the repository. I also see no reason why a user want to (manually) replace an ORCID coming from Crossref. Is there a realistic scenario for that? However, even besides the ORCID information, the other bibliographic data from Crossref is much better than the one which can be imported by orcid.org only. Can you reconsider the availability of an DOI import for the ORCID plugin?
