There are 2 methods for entering your NOAA affiliations within ORCID: all-in-one or concurrent entry.
Concurrent Entry Method (recommended for all; required for contractors)
Through our ORCID Membership, the NOAA Central Library has the ability to manage your ORCID profile for you! With your permission, NCL is able to update your affiliations. In addition, a long-term development will be to update/add publications you have deposited in the NOAA IR into your ORCID profile as well. By granting NOAA permissions to serve as a Trusted Organization, we can update/edit your ORCID affiliations on your behalf. Permissions can be revoked at any time by the researcher.
Access is requested via email, and will include a unique URL for researchers to approve NCL access. Once approved, the NCL will be able to update your affiliation(s) to ensure they are linked appropriately to NOAA organizational identifiers. In your ORCID profile the source will appear as "National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)".
The NOAA Central Library has created a form where NOAA researchers can request their ORCID be added to their NOAA IR publications (ie. grant permission) or request a ROR be created for their office in order to properly update their ORCID affiliation. ORCIDs can be provided to the NOAA IR either via a batch (for offices/labs) or a single author entry. This information will be used to add a link to the the researcher's ORCID profile via the NOAA IR publication landing page(s).
The benefits of granting NOAA Trusted Organization Status include:
