Draft ORCID API is now open for viewing!

The API draft is now available for public viewing and covers:

  • Levels of privacy and other contextual terminology.
  • Public query API by way of illustrative HTTP query dialogues.
  • Protected Data query via OAuth.
    • OAuth Workflow is illustrated in some depth

This is a pre-release of the API; it is nearly there, but it would be foolish to assume that the API will not change if any difficulties arise or if a better way is agreed upon.

Google Doc version of API:

As the document is ‘view-only’, you cannot comment on it directly. Please post queries and observations to the ORCID Researcher Google group.

NB Posting a comment here will not directly reach the other members of the ORCID board.
