HAL is referenced by ORCID as a database that researchers can use to import their works: researchers can complete their ORCID record with their HAL deposits in just one click.
The setting up of this feature in HAL is part of the membership of the CNRS to ORCID. ORCID is a non profit organization whose business model is based on free access for researchers, and on membership for organizations. This provides them with a set of tools and services based on ORCID data and APIs.
Joining a consortium is a way for organizations to benefit from preferential membership rates.
