Edanz Group announced this week a new collaboration with ORCID which will make it possible for authors to connect their ORCID iD to the company's Author Path, Author Academy, and Author Services websites.
Koji Yamashita, CEO of Edanz Group, said, "I am excited to work with ORCID to provide the best authoring experiences possible, from author education and manuscript writing, all the way to submitting to journals automatically."
Laurel Haak, Executive Director of ORCID, said, "We are pleased that Edanz will be supporting ORCID in their authoring platforms to streamline the manuscript preparation process for researchers."
Starting this week, users of the Chinese- and English-language versions of Edanz's websites will be able to connect their ORCID iD to their Edanz account and access all of the company's products. The Japanese version of the Edanz Author Path will be updated to include the ORCID option later this month.
Additionally, new users will be able to register on Edanz products using their ORCID iD. In the future, users will also be able to export publication information to ORCID from products such as the Edanz Author Path.
The Edanz Author Path (https://www.author-path.com/) is a scientific writing and collaboration tool for researchers and authors specifically developed for non-native English speakers. It provides end-to-end manuscript writing guidance as well as journal selection, and lets authors easily invite co-authors to collaborate on projects.
The Edanz Author Academy (https://en.edanzacademy.com/) is a series of free online courses covering every aspect of publishing - from manuscript writing through to submission and review.
