Managing Author Profiles Online
Types of Works in ORCID
You may keep track of a wide range of scholarly outputs in your ORCID profile as seen on the image below. In particular, an ORCID profile may be used as a tool for early career scholars to showcase their works. You have full control over privacy settings for each of your works.
Add Publications & Grants to Your ORCID Profile
You may populate your ORCID profile by:
- Searching CrossRef, DataCite and other sources that support DOIs. CrossRef may be overwhelming when trying to find your publications.
- Creating ResearcherID (in Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics (formerly ThomsonReuters / ISI)) and/or free Scopus Author ID (from Elsevier) profiles and authorizing data exchange with ORCID.
- Adding your works manually.
- Importing BibTex files from Google Scholar or reference managers such as EndNote.
Depending on a discipline, stage of the academic career, and number of publications, it may be more productive to first create and populate ResearcherID and/or free Scopus Author ID profiles, exchange the publication data with ORCID, and then manually de-duplicate records. During de-duping, we recommend giving preference to entries from CrossRef, Web of Science, or Scopus due to lower quality of metadata of Google Scholar records.
Newly-published works will automatically appear in your ORCID profile if the publisher requested an ORCID iD during manuscript submission process.
Assign a Delegate to Update Your ORCID
- Sign in to your ORCID account. Go to “Account Settings.”

- Search the designated person with her/his ORCID ID. Click “Search.”

Note - When you assign someone as a trusted individual, they must have permission to update your ORCID record on your behalf and must also be an ORCID user.
