While traditional outputs include scholarly books, chapters, articles and conference papers, there is also an increasing variety of non-traditional research outputs.

Non-Traditional Research Outputs (NTROs) differ from traditional research outputs, such as scholarly monographs or peer-reviewed journal articles and can be added to your ORCID record.

NTROs are frequently, although not exclusively, the product of creative or practice-based research projects and practices and include the research products of different kinds of critical endeavours.

Since 2018, the ERA process has broadened to include an Engagement and Impact assessment (EI)  and assesses how well researchers are engaging with end-users of research and shows how universities are translating their research into economic, social, environmental, cultural and other impacts.

This includes a new range of outputs such as blogs, social media posts and writing for The Conversation.

These non-traditional forms of publication can now be tracked and counted by using platforms such as Altmetric Explorer and be an important part of your ORCID publishing profile.

Altmetric is able to recognise a variety of unique identifiers from ORCID profiles, including DOIs, PubMed IDs. 

You can add this from the Works menu from your ORCID record and choosing the Add DOI option.
