From that ORCID blog post:

We already know researchers don’t want to spend time managing their profiles in multiple systems and duplicating the same data about what they’ve contributed to science or the humanities—they would rather be spending that time on research!

Earlier this year, we launched a data platform to give us better insight into these questions and to guide us in our decision-making. The more we understand how researchers are using their iDs, the better positioned we are to make effective decisions around product and service development, user design, or even training content.

Though we are going to be offering these interactive graphs on our new website in 2021, we wanted to share a few of them with you to give you an idea of some of the things we are already learning.
