QScience Connect Article Processing Charges waived for authors with ORCIDs

At QScience.com, we love ORCID.

It’s simply an ingenious way of removing ambiguity when it comes to article authorship.

ORCID stands for Open Researcher & Contributor ID and is a non-profit organization that allows researchers to obtain a persistent digital identifier. This ID number is unique to a given author and ultimately solves many attribution issues such as researchers with similar names, or researchers with multiple names or name variants.

In order to encourage the adoption and uptake of ORCIDs, QScience.com has recently announced to waive all QScience Connect article processing charges (APCs) for authors who input their ORCID identifiers when submitting an article.

To qualify for this APC waiver, all authors have to do is update their user profiles in the journal’s submission system with their unique ORCID identifier. New authors will be asked to input their ORCIDs when they register for the site.

Instruction to QScience Connect APC waiver

I also had the chance to sit down with QScience.com Editorial Director, Dr. Christopher Leonard, and asked him about this new exciting development for QScience Connect.

He describes in the following video how he believes ORCID is an essential part of the future of scholarly communication and how he hopes it will be used to attribute all online content.
