ORCID oauth would be a good way to log in.
The ability to define author orcids in two ways:
As an author (via logging in)
As an editor (or author) without login; no confirmation but helpful as disambig
For the second option, an ORCID suggested / autocomplete tool that tries to generate ID and related metadata from the authors name, would be helpful for editors.
