Adding information to your ORCID

Adding information to your ORCID

There are three main ways to add works to your ORCID record:

  • Link your works from another system (recommended)
    • To link works from another system, choose Search & link from the Add menu in the works portion of your record.
    • Select a system from the list (CrossRef is a good general source, others will depend on your discipline). You'll be asked to authorize the system, and will then be able to identify works in that system that are yours and that you would like transferred to your record. Each system behaves a little differently, and there may be a couple of intermediate steps not described here. For more information, see Add works by direct import from other systems in the ORCID Knowledge Base.
  • Import a BibTeX file of your works 
  • Manually type in information about your works
    • To manually type in information about your works, choose Add manually from the Add works menu in the works portion of your record, and complete the form to describe a work. For more information, see Add works manually in the ORCID Knowledge Base

Control the visibility of information in your ORCID record

You may control how much of your ORCID record is publicly visible. For both your personal information and information about your works, three settings are available:

Screenshot_2021-11-26_at_17.21.10.png Public or Everyone: information is available via the ORCID API and visible to visitors to the ORCID website
Screenshot_2021-11-26_at_17.21.18.png Trusted parties: information is visible only to individuals and organizations you authorize
Screenshot_2021-11-26_at_17.21.29.png Private: information is visible only to you
