Holly Falk-Krzesinski shares her experiences regarding choosing which name to publish under — as well as a romantic story about her marriage:
I signed up for my own account in part as preparation for a talk I’ve been asked to give at UNT for Open Access Week. You can check out my ORCiD here.
It still doesn’t contain all my publications, and in this respect, Google Scholar is better. But Google Scholar also can’t disambiguate me from me, much less me from someone else with a similar name — I’ve contacted them about having listed some of my publications twice; but they can’t really do anything about it, and there’s only so much editing one can do on one’s own profile.
I also tried out the feature that allows one to link the ORCiD to the Scopus author ID. Unfortunately, Scopus has me listed as “Jack Britt Holbrook.” It’s kind of catchy, I suppose; but it’s not my name. I contacted the Scopus ID folks about it, so we’ll see what happens.
So, now my question is this: If I use my ORCiD to sign things (this blog post, for instance), will they automatically be imported into my ORCiD account?
