#hotmessnexis : just got this e-mail from the eresources people at my larger place of work: The LexisNexis State Capital database is down and unavailable for access. The vendor has retired the old State Capital database, and changed the resource from State Capital to State Net. They have also changed the access method for the new resource, from IP address to Username/Password, which is not currently working.

Comment

Jeepers just when I thought that the #hotmessnexis couldn't get any hotter or messier, and it does.

I asked a question on Twitter and got a reply from the guy who wrote the O'Reilly book on the topic. I mean. It's definitely still good for questions like this. RT @IntranetFocus: @Prossian @cpikas https://t.co/HCO0Q7P3vW is a good place to start. https://t.co/DZxAvmXzFB is also very helpful. Ryen White https://t.co/rwwSotjcCv is thorough but writes from a rather academic perspective. And then of course there is my book https://t.co/IyDkoezJyshttps://twitter.com/IntranetFocus/status/1179100425183797249

I uploaded my basic scripts for getting orcids from the orcid and crossref apis using R here: https://github.com/cpikas/orcid these are the same as here: https://christinaslisrant.scientopia.org/2019/09/25/finding-orcids-not-as-easy-as-you-think/

We're trying to get ORCIDs for our people. We're going to ask them and all, and we've already searched Scopus for them (found 30 out of ~3000 authors they have affiliated with us over the years) and ORCID itself (up to 125 researchers)... but I see them showing on IEEE (for example)... but not available through the IEEE API. Is there something obvious I'm missing?

Comment

Does it (the articles) show up in the Crossref metadata API with orcids?

if you going to do it once, just do a broader institutional affiliation search and go for recall I guess. Then manually remove.

Oooorrrr they encode individual signature as the number of tabs, so if the list gets leaked they know who's the culprit.

no drama at the DMV - got my RealID paperwork in... luckily they didn't need my marriage license since everything else is in my married name. took about 5 minutes (had an appointment). only minor annoyance was them skipping over the veteran endorsement page for me and trying to insist the old guy next to me should fill it out (he was NOT a veteran, I am - and I had my DD214 with me so now have the endorsement).

i had to have my marriage license. feh.

they recalled everyone with a due date that was far enough out and let the rest of us wait until regular due date. Our due dates are on our birthdays. my colleague here was recalled to do it.

Leaving aside that, ugh, Facebook: The idea of creating a system to bring order to chaos is appealing. The idea of getting people to use and maintain it is less so. I think these should be two separate jobs: one fixed term contract, essentially a consultant, to do a thorough audit of what's currently there, work out a new system, and implement it; with that implementation overlapping with the onboarding of a permanent position who has the skills and authority to make people use the damn thing, keep it up-to-date, provide training etc.
