Paper just out, on ORCID and collective action

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Þessi grein kom út fyrr í mánuðinum. Hún var aðallega skrifuð af eðalmenninu Martin Fenner sem leiðir eins konar “útrásarhóp” (e. Outreach Working Group) innan ORCID sem ég er líka meðlimur í, en ég og önnur OWG manneskja lögðum hönd á bagga við skrifin. Þetta er  stuttur og býsna auðlæsilegur pistill, og birtur í opnum aðgangi líka, svo endilega smellið á tengilinn með stutta DOI auðkenninu fyrir neðan til að komast í greinina og byrja að lesa!:

Fenner, M., Gómez, C.G. & Thorisson, G.A. Key Issue Collective Action for the Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID)Serials: The Journal for the Serials Community 24, 277-279 (2011). http://doi.org/bc8cfv

[..] The success of ORCID depends on a critical num-ber of enabling services and users. It is the perfect example for a collective action problem, described in detail by economist Mancur Olson in 19653: without selective incentives for participation, collective action is unlikely to occur even with large groups of people with common interests. What this means for the forthcoming launch of the ORCID service is that ORCID has to focus on incentives for individual groups of stakeholders, and that the adoption will happen in stages, adding value for a particular group at each stage.[..]

Fyrir þá sem vilja endilega lesa sér meira til um þetta mikilvæga átak þá get ég mælt með annarra grein eftir Martin sem var birt fyrir skömmu:

Fenner, M. ORCID: Unique Identifiers for Authors And Contributors. Information Standards Quarterly 23 (2011). http://doi.org/gx4

In this article I want to describe some of the important decisions that were made in order to ensure widespread adoption, and therefore success, of the ORCID service.
