What’s all the chatter about ORCID Identifiers?

ORCID is an acronym, short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.

With a free ORCID iD, you can create a unique authoring fingerprint.  This personal identifier can link all of your research output and activities publications across multiple platforms. Your iD travels with you.  Get properly recognized for all of your scholarship! Over 2 million other researchers now possess ORCID iDs.

Do you have a common name or name variations?  Your ORCID iD can link them all and identify YOU and your research.  Plus it helps with distinguishing between authors with similar names when searching PubMed, Scopus, etc.  And publishers and funders are getting on board and may request your ORCID iD on publication submissions and grant applications.

Visit http://orcid.org/ to register for an iD and learn more.  It’s fast and free. Or contact me for questions or help.

2015 Annual Opioid Poisoning, Overdose and Prevention Report to the Governor and NYS Legislature:

http://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/aids/general/opioid_overdose_prevention/docs/annual_report2015.pdf

This report is the first of an annual report and is hosted on the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) website with other informational materials.

It provides an overview of opioid-related mortality and morbidity and other consequences of heroin and prescription opioid misuse across New York State over the last five years. It also summarizes new and expanded initiatives and collaborative cross-disciplinary efforts to identify, assess, and address those problems, as well as the legal and regulatory developments that opened the way for them.

This report reflects the work of many state and local government agencies, which have collected, shared and examined data to identify where and to whom opioid overdoses are occurring, and to help inform timely, effective public health and public safety policy and practices to reduce the related deaths, disease, and social harms affecting New York’s communities.
