ORCID is proud to launch their support of CRediT (Contributor Roles Taxonomy) alongside existing contributor roles with ORCID’s API 3.0!

So happy that we now support the CRediT taxonomy in ORCID. @allen_liz @amy_brand @verokiermer @NISOInfo

As noted in that blog post, "CRediT was developed collaboratively by a small group of editors, funders, and university administrators starting in 2012; tested in real life scenarios; and refined through broad community consultation. In 2016, journals started implementing the taxonomy, and it is now standard with more than 30 publishers."
