​Any non-profit research organization in the US can become an ORCID premium consortium member through the ORCID US Community at a substantially reduced rate of $4300 per calendar year. This membership fee can be pro-rated for new members joining mid-year. Premium membership is the highest level of ORCID membership. To request a quote and become a member, contact orcidus@lyrasis.org.

ORCID US Membership Benefits

While it is free for researchers to create their individual ORCID iD record, membership is needed for institutions to fully take advantage of the ORCID ecosystem. Membership benefits to a research institution include:

  • Access to the Premium Member ORCID API for connecting multiple enterprise systems with the ORCID registry. Integration of systems with the ORCID API allows institutions to:

    • Authenticate, connect, read, and update associated researchers’ ORCID iD records

    • Assert ownership of organization name(s) for consistent, trusted, and valid affiliations with researchers

    • Maintain connections with researchers across time, disciplines, and borders

    • Ease administrative burden with faster, automated information sharing via interoperability

  • Monthly analytics reports

  • Monthly ORCID Member Newsletter

Member Responsibilities

To get the most value from ORCID, members should use the ORCID API to integrate ORCID into their systems (5 API keys are included in the ORCID US member benefits), and to assert affiliations onto individuals' ORCID iD records. Successful integrations take planning and time.
