ORCID-CA is sustained through institutional membership. We support all types of Canadian institutions and organizations promoting ORCID among scholars and integrating ORCID into local software systems. These institutions include universities, government departments and agencies, research centres and networks, not-for-profit publishers, research funders, and more! Within institutions, different stakeholders often lead and facilitate member initiatives regarding distinct systems, from libraries to research offices, IT to HR.
ORCID-CA membership fees are comprised of two components:
- The ORCID License Fee: $3,500 US per year
- The ORCID-CA Member Support Fee: the program cost for running ORCID-CA divided by all ORCID-CA members. In 2019-2022, this cost is roughly $3,200 CA per year
ORCID's License Fee grants access to five sets of Premium Member API credentials, premium member API functionality (e.g., webhooks), monthly reports, and more. Joining ORCID-CA substantially reduces the cost of joining ORCID directly.
ORCID-CA’s Member Support Fee provides members with the direct bilingual support, resources, and engagement of the ORCID-CA Community Manager, as well as the ORCID-CA Community of Practice (e.g., ORCID-CA Slack, Member Materials Google Drive, members-only webinars and community calls).
Members are invited to join at any time throughout the year and membership fees will be pro-rated.
