Once you have your ORCID profile, you can populate it with your publications, datasets, and other research outputs and also use it to document your work history and professional credentials.
ORCID provides many search and link "wizards" that allow you to easily populate your profile by directly importing works from other systems , including:
Scopus Author ID: Use this wizard to add your Scopus Author ID to your Other IDs section of your record and import works associated with your Scopus Author ID; see Manage My [Scopus] Author Profile for more information. Recommended for adding multiple published articles to your ORCID record.
ResearcherID: This ResearcherID publication wizard is temporarily unavailable while ResearcherID is moving to Publons. Follow this link to join Publons, find your publications on Web of Science, and export them to ORCID.
CrossRef Metadata Search: CrossRef Metadata Search allows you to search and add works by title or DOI. Once you have authorized the connection and are logged into ORCID, CrossRef search results include a button to add works to your ORCID record.
DataCite: DataCite allows you to find your research datasets, images, and other works. Recommended for locating works other than articles as well as works that can be found by DOI.
MLA International Bibliography: MLA International Bibliography allows users to import books and articles from the Modern Language Association's database. Recommended for adding works in the humanities.
(For a complete list of search and link wizards, follow the link to the ORCID support page.)
Other options include importing a BibTeX file of your works, individually uploading them via a PubMed ID, ArXiv URL or article DOI, or manually adding the information.
