As reported in the May issue of the RVP Newsletter, Australian research funding bodies recently endorsed the use of ORCID iDs by funding applicants. This has generated considerable interest in ORCID adoption from Australian universities.

Based on the success of HKBU’s ORCID initiative, the Australian National Data Service invited Chris Chan from the RVP team to present a webinar to share our experience. This will help guide Australian institutions in their own rollouts of ORCID.

ORCID in the News
The UK Recommends ORCID

In an Independent Review of the Role of Metrics in Research Assessment and Management commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the use of ORCID iDs received strong and unambiguous support.

Recommendation 10 of the report reads :

The UK research system should take full advantage of ORCID as its preferred system of unique identifiers. ORCID iDs should be mandatory for all researchers in the next REF [Research Excellence Framework].

The full report was published on 9 July 2015, and can be downloaded from the HEFCE website at: http://www.hefce.ac.uk/rsrch/metrics

The Metric Tide

Enhanced Research Project System (RPS)
The RPS is the system through which faculty and administrators can report their research output to the University.
Working with colleagues from ITO and the Graduate School, the RVP team has enabled a manuscript submission function in the RPS.
RPS New Manuscript Upload Function
Now you can easily submit your paper for inclusion in the HKBU Institutional Repository without making a separate request.

A presentation on this enhancement was made in July :
