I am currently using the public API to obtain author ORCID IDs for my institution, Virginia Tech. We have a list of author names for which we want to obtain ORCID IDs.
The affiliations in ORCID are stored as - "Virginia Tech" or "Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University" and hence while querying the search API we need to use a boolean for the affiliation-org-name field. However, the expression seems to be evaluating poorly. For example, while using the following query ---https://pub.orcid.org/v3.0/expanded-search/?q=(family-name:allen) AND (affiliation-org-name:"virginia polytechnic institute and state university" or "Virginia Tech")authors who are affiliated to West Virginia University, University of Virginia, etc get returned but when the query is run without the OR expression for the affiliation-org-name field, the correct results return. So do you guys suggest to run the search separately for affiliation-org-name: Virginia Tech and then affiliation-org-name: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University separately? Or are we using the Boolean expression incorrectly?
