ORCID Releases a New Feature: Delegates for ORCID Accounts. I am convinced that ORCID records are important for scholars and may even be required by some funders soon. I want to learn more about ORCID. Since I try to track publications anyway, I would be happy to be a designated ORCID "trusted individual" for WU math faculty or graduate students. To set this up you will need my ORCID record, http://orcid.org/0000-0002-2680-6235. I don't know if I can sustain that forever but for now this would probably be a benefit to both of us. Just let Ruth know if you do this, because I don't know if ORCID would notify me. Thanks.
