This guide will demonstrate how to create, manage, import and export from your ORCID profile. ORCID allows you to create a unique author identifier for yourself to specifically identify your publications.

Add Your Works

You can add journal articles, books, conference proceedings, patents, datasets, etc. to your record once you have created your ORCID account.  There are many ways to add materials to your record:

Search & Link

ORCID allows you to link your works from other databases to your account.  You can search and import these types of materials from 17 databases.  A few examples are listed below: 

  • CrossRef Metadata Search - journal articles, conference proceedings, books, and book chapters
  • DataCite - research datasets, images, and other works
  • Europe PubMed Central - all of PubMed, 500K records from Agricola that cannot be found in PubMed, 4 million Patents and 2.6 million full text articles that share with PMC in the USA
  • ResearcherID - materials link to ResearcherID
  • Scopus Author ID - materials link to Scopus Author ID

Additional information can be found at Add works by direct import from other systems. If your publications are not in one of the 17 databases, you can check whether they can be exported in BibTex format.

Add BibTeX

ORCID allows you to import citations from BibTex (.bib) files into your record. These files include files exported from Google Scholar and other most used citation management tools.
