Leading provider of faculty-focused technology Interfolio offers new levels of integration with researcher-identification system to enhance accuracy and completeness of scholarly accomplishments.

WASHINGTON, DC — October 10, 2018 — Interfolio, creator of the first faculty information system, announced an enhanced partnership with ORCID, provider of unique identifiers for scholars. With this partnership, researchers and their institutions will be able to synch scholarly data within a single, faculty-focused platform, streamlining the scholar recognition process.

“We are excited to be working with Interfolio,” said Laurel Haak, Executive Director of ORCID. “Faculty will benefit from easier information exchange, saving them time, and consequently institutions will have more accurate data to support their reporting needs.”

“Partnering with ORCID further adds to our ability to empower faculty to develop their academic story continuously across their career,” said Ben Wang, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Interfolio. “ORCID integration with Interfolio’s FIS makes it nearly seamless for faculty to leverage, enhance, and add to their scholarly story from a central platform.”

Through this expanded partnership, faculty at institutions using Interfolio are able to seamlessly update their data from their ORCID record, which consolidates individuals’ research, scholarship, and innovation contributions from a variety of sources. Faculty will gain a powerful tool for seeing and sharing their accomplishments, and institutions will have a more complete and accurate view of the research and activities of their scholars.
