Why we applied to the ORCID Global Participation Fund.
ORCID is an essential service for us. It allows scholars to connect to their research results globally and across multiple services. And ORCID offers the option to seamlessly authenticate to many services in the context of research. This makes it possible to log in to a service that supports this with a central login, regardless of institutional affiliation.
DSpace is the open source software that powers the most publication repositories in the world. Over 3000 installations are listed in the registry. They are distributed over all continents. DSpace or the variant DSpace-CRIS is also used to operate TUHH Open Research for Open Access publication, research data and research information at the TU Hamburg.
