2014 will be an exciting year. Horizon 2020 will open even more calls for applications. Participant Portal is a portal for information about Horizon 2020Current calls for Horizon 2020 can be found here. During the spring the library and Swedish School of Library and Information Science will arrange two days on publishing and scientific communication.

Also, we at the library will start a project on ORCID, a unique research ID and CRIS, which is a system for Current Research Information. People from other parts of the organisation will be involved.

Before it is time to wind down and take some time of we want to remind you to register your publications from 2013 in BADA. The deadline for registration is the 17th of January.

ORCID – an international ID for researchers

Good news for all researchers. Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) is launched today. ORCID is a non-profit organization and they aim to create a global open register with unique IDs for researchers. You can register yourself; all you need is your and your name, and it does not cost you anything. They do not aim to collect a lot of information on researchers or your research interests, the goal is to be a register. The IDs will be used by other services to communicate and manage information.

One benefit of an international research-ID is that it will be easier for you and a publisher to communicate with each, other since there might be researchers with the same name as you. In other words it will be easier to connect a researcher with a publication.
