“With an ORCID researchers are able to uniquely distinguish their contributions to publications, data and software from others'. This way ambiguities based on names become less likely and should gradually disappear and become something of the past. Increasingly you will be able to add publications faster and with more accuracy in systems like PURE (the new Metis), which in turn will automatically update your personal pages at the VU. I'm just an enthusiastic supporter of anything that reduces administrative tasks of the researcher, and thus frees up more time for research and education.”

"A big advantage of using ORCID is that it incorporates information from various sources (e.g. Researcher ID, Scopus, Crossref) into a single overview. Furthermore, it automatically updates your information once links with these other systems are created. So it saves a lot of time that can be devoted to research or teaching. It also allows you to gain real-time insight on non-scientific dissemination of your work, such as social media, news messages and policy reports. ORCID opens possibilities for showing individuals’ contributions to scientific output in the near future."

"I want to make the best of my time. With ORCID I don’t have to worry about the different ways my name is spelled in different journals. (e degeus, e degues, EJ de geus, E de Geus, EJC de geus, etc.) When ORCID is used during paper submission, my affiliation name is automatically added. For manuscripts with 700+ co-authors in a consortium, this literally saves one day of work. Also in order review a paper, most journals identify you with your ORCID, and the papers automatically linked to it."
Prof. dr. Eco de Geus

"ORCID is a useful independent component in the scholarly communication information infrastructure that can be used for (open) linked data. This way it becomes easier to create relations and overviews between research projects, grants, publications, conference-proceedings, co-authors, contributors, affiliations, software and data."

NARCIS is dé nationale portal voor wie informatie zoekt over wetenschappers en hun werk. Naast wetenschappers maken ook studenten, journalisten en medewerkers binnen onderwijs, overheid en het bedrijfsleven gebruik van NARCIS.
NARCIS biedt toegang tot wetenschappelijke informatie waaronder (open access) publicaties afkomstig uit de repositories van alle Nederlandse universiteiten, KNAW, NWO en diverse wetenschappelijke instellingen, datasets van een aantal data-archieven, alsmede beschrijvingen van onderzoeksprojecten, onderzoekers en onderzoeksinstituten.
Dit houdt in dat NARCIS (nog) niet gebruikt kan worden als ingang tot complete overzichten van publicaties van onderzoekers. Er zijn echter steeds meer instellingen die al hun wetenschappelijke publicaties via NARCIS toegankelijk maken. Op deze wijze kunnen de publicatielijsten van de wetenschappers zo compleet mogelijk worden gemaakt.
In 2004 is de ontwikkeling van NARCIS gestart als een samenwerkingsproject van KNAW Onderzoek Informatie, NWO, VSNU en METIS in het kader van de dienstenontwikkeling binnen het DARE-programma van SURFfoundation. Dit project heeft de portal NARCIS verwezenlijkt, waarin in januari 2007 de dienst DAREnet is geïncorporeerd. Sinds 2011 is NARCIS een dienst van DANS.
A MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web.

NARCIS is the main national portal for those looking for information about researchers and their work. Besides researchers, NARCIS is also used by students, journalists and people working in educational and government institutions as well as the business sector.
NARCIS provides access to scientific information, including (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO and a number of research institutes, datasets from some data archives as well as descriptions of research projects, researchers and research institutes.
This means that NARCIS cannot be used as an entry point to access complete overviews of publications of researchers (yet). However, there are more institutions that make all their scientific publications accessible via NARCIS. By doing so, it will become possible to create much more complete publication lists of researchers.
In 2004, the development of NARCIS started as a cooperation project of KNAW Research Information, NWO, VSNU and METIS, as part of the development of services within the DARE programme of SURFfoundation. This project resulted in the NARCIS portal, in which the DAREnet service was incorporated in January 2007. NARCIS has been part of DANS since 2011.
When people create educational resources, they may choose to share them with others openly and freely. This means that others can use these materials as part of their courses and lessons without permission. A creator of an open textbook, for example, can give explicit permission to others to use their book free of charge. We call these open education resources (OER).
