Import from ORCID is a simple plugin for EPrints that demonstrates how publications could be imported into EPrints for a given author identified by an ORCID, using the ORCID Tier 1 (public) API.

For Developers: Technical Details

Given an author's ORCID, the plugin queries the ORCID Tier 1 API and retrieves a list of works published by that author in JSON format.

The metadata describing each work may include a work-citation-format (for example, BIBTEX) and/or multiple work-external-identifier-type (for example, DOI, PMID) elements - where the work-citation-format or work-external-identifier-type can be mapped to an EPrints import plugin an Import option is displayed next to the work.
