      Description

      See https://github.com/openrif/vivo-isf-ontology/issues/742

      Currently ORCiD URI in VIVO are asserted to be owl:Thing only. We should have an ORCiD Class and assert the uri to be an individual in the class as in:

      {{<orcidURI> a vivo:ORCiD . }}

      (Unless there is an existing ontology that already defines ORCiD – perhaps the WikiData ontology?)

      The ORCiD can then be inferred to be an owl:Thing.

      Medium Impact. Minor triple store upgrade – add an ORCiD class assertion for every existing ORCiD. Minor software change to assert URI is an ORCiD (rather than an owl:Thing). The inferencer then supplies owl:Thing and everything should work as expected.

      Without this, sites have ORCiD URI in their triples stores that cannot be identified by type, only as owl:Thing, which is not informative.  Humans are able to discern the URI are ORCiD, but machines are not.
