Abstract
This assessment focuses on how ORCID will be implemented in scientific institutions in Germany. In doing so, the institutional rules and German and European standards to which the scientific institutions in Germany which implement ORCID are subject, will be considered. In the process, account should be taken of the fact that personal data being collected in the European Union will be transferred into the USA. The key requirement of this assessment is that the assessment be formulated such that it is as generally understandable and universally applicable as possible, thus offering a guiding framework for legal evaluation onsite, for example in colleges and non-university research institutions. The concern of the assessment is to support scientific institutions in the legally compliant implementation of author identification using ORCID. The preparation of the assessment was preceded by a process which ought to ensure cooperation with the DFG Project ORCID DE. Specific questions were compiled in this manner (Annex I)14 during a workshop in 2016 after a presentation of fundamental data protection principles; further issues were addressed within the scope of an additional “Community Input” (Annex II), which was gathered by the project ORCID DE. Also, part of the assessment was a correspondence with the operators of ORCID. The corresponding questions of this exchange are also addressed in this assessment.
