Since ORCID’s inception, our key goal has been to unambiguously identify researchers and provide tools to automate the connection between researchers and their creative works.
We are taking a big step towards achieving this goal today, with the launch of Auto-Update functionality in collaboration with Crossref and Data Cite.
Researchers frequently ask, “Why, if I include my ORCID i D when I submit a manuscript or dataset, isn’t my ORCID record “automagically” updated when the work is published?
” With the launch of Auto-Update, that is just what will happen. Crossref and Data Cite, both non-profit organizations, are leaders in minting DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) for research publications and datasets.
Recently one of our readers asked how they can automatically update Word Press plugins.
Many users find it annoying that almost every other day they have to update a plugin.
It might seem like magic but there are a few steps to make it work: More information about how to opt out of this service can be found here: the ORCID Inbox. A DOI is a unique alphanumeric string assigned to a digital object – in this case, an electronic journal article, book chapter, or a dataset.
Each DOI is associated with a set of basic metadata and a URL pointer to the full text, so that it uniquely identifies the content item and provides a persistent link to its location on the internet.
When it comes to security, we know how important is to regularly update Word Press installations (core, themes and plugins), and how long the upgrade process could take to us, especially when we have installed a good number of plugins.
It’s commonly recommended to follow these steps: It could be a tedious task for a single web site, and could be an annoying and complex job when we’ve to update five, ten or more websites.
The response from this server contains information about any newer versions that may be available, including if the plugin, theme or core needs to be updated automatically.
