GDPR and ORCID integration

2018-06-03

The site was updated (3.1.1 -> 3.1.1-1) to comply with GDPR (EU's data protection rules) and in the process ORCID integration was also enabled.

1) Our OJS server has been using since 25 May encrypted connections as required by GDPR.

2) OJS software was updated and the current version ask from user authorization for sending alerts and other messages, as reequired by GDPR.

3) ORCID integration is now working in the registration page. We are currently using ORCID's public API so our server can only see the information made available as public in ORCID profiles.

If you would want to learn more about ORCID and what benefits it provides please watch this video (< 5 min).
