I'm new to this ORCiD API Users support group, so apologies if this question and related questions have been answered before.

I came across python-orcid and noticed that it only supports v2 of the Member API. Last year, someone raised the issue about whether support for v3 is available, particularly since they have concerns about v2 support being deprecated.

Two questions:
1. Any plans to update this codebase for v3 support?
2. Are there specific plans for v2 deprecation?

Hi Chun, 

Thank you for reaching out. 

To answer your questions, the python-orcid wrapper was not developed and it is not maintained by ORCID. In this case, you can contact Mateusz Susik (the author) directly to get some answers. You can also volunteer to maintain the wrapper. 

Regarding the API versions, we do not have a specific plan to deprecate v2.0, however, we strongly recommend you work with v3.0, which is our latest and default version. Feel free also to check out our API version policy: 

I hope that this information helps. If any further questions arise, do let us know. We are here to help.
