[Objective] Provide evidence for the choice and application of contributor identifier system from the view of construction mechanism of Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) system. [Methods] Analyze ORCID system from three aspects, namely construction model, claim/authentication pattern and metadata specification, and compare with other contributor identifier systems based on documents and cases. [Results] Obtain ORCID's construction mechanism and characteristics. [Conclusions] ORCID is bottom-up and jointly constructed driven by users. ORCID mixes different types of claims and authentications and disambiguates based on authority and trust degree. ORCID's metadata control improves degree of authority through identifiers linkage and resolving.
