Andy Mabbett FRSA, a Wikipedia editor since 2013, is Wikipedian in Residence at ORCID and Wikimedian in Residence at Royal Society of Chemistry. He will describe the use of ORCID in Wikipedia biographies and in Wikipedia’s sister projects, not least the linked-, open- data repository Wikidata, as well as he use of ORCID identifiers by Wikipedia editors (who are, of course, content creators in the ORCID sense) in their user profiles and the potential for using ORCID to identify authors whose work is referenced in Wikipedia citations. He will also discuss how Wikipedia editors and people who are the subject of a Wikipedia biography can include those roles in their ORCID profiles.
