Pages listing the articles on which a given author is cited, determined by their ORCID identifier


Author: andy

An ORCID identifier [1] is like an ISBN or DOI for a person. We're discussing [2] adding them to citations on en.Wikipedia, and would encourage sister projects to do likewise.

It is proposed to link such citations to a page, similar to 'Special:BookSources', called 'Special:ORCID', which would link to the corresponding page on the ORCID website [3], and to all the articles on the given Wiki which have citations that include the specified ORCID. (A mock-up is available [4].)

This bug is to request the provision of a 'Special:ORCID' facility.

For a given ORCID identifier, the author name can be retrieved using the ORCID API.

In the short term, while a way to compile the list of articles is considered, a page just giving the name and a link would be an acceptable interim solution.

See bug 53348 Once thats implemented this could just tag onto that

I've added hCard microformat [1] markup to the mockup page, for added semantic richness.

Where the person identified is the subject of a Wikipedia article, we should include a link to that (or to a Reasonator page [2], if there is no article in the user's preferred language).

The existence of a Wikipedia article can be detected by looking for the ORCID in Wikidata (P496, [3])); in future it may be available via the ORCID API.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
