How to source on the lesser known Site!!Orcid!!

Recruiting Process

ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD) that you own and control, and that

distinguishes you from every other researcher. You can connect your iD with your professional

information — affiliations, grants, publications, peer review, and more. You can use your iD to share

your information with other systems, ensuring you get recognition for all your contributions, saving

you time and hassle, and reducing the risk of errors. Orcid is a little-known site and few have tried

to source in it. Well to do this without you need go no further than into your bag of tricks and pull

out an old tried and true tool, called x-raying.

So, to source within Orcid you simply need to create an x-ray string, like the one below.

site:orcid.org/  (“Java” AROUND * “Keywords”)

If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.

Then use your social detective skills and you are set.

If you need more info on X-raying see my blog post http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/seeing-what-is-really…

Until next week may the source be with you!!
