ORCiD at Brandeis University

This guide is intended for faculty and student researchers. It contains information about the Open Researcher and Contributor iD (ORCiD) registry, including how to get, use, and connect your ORCiD.

ORCiD for Faculty

The most important thing to do with an ORCiD is use it! Add your ORCiD to email signatures, online profiles, manuscript submissions, peer reviews, grant applications, and more. If a journal or conference you are submitting to does not have a way to include an ORCiD with your information, consider contacting the editors or organizers and requesting that they make it an option. Check out the Using ORCID page for more info on how to update and use your ORCiD account.

ORCiD also provides distinct benefits for faculty when it comes to updating Faculty Activity Reports, other types of reporting, or simply establishing an online presence.
  • Import/export your citations between ORCiD and other systems such as Google Scholar or using BibTeX files. Check out ORCiD's tutorial. (If your citations cannot be exported in BibTeX, don't worry! There are other ways to update your account. See the "Using ORCiD" page for more information.)

Import and export citations using BibTeX

BibTeX is a platform-independent, plain-text format used for bibliographic citations. BibTeX files can be created and edited using many popular reference management tools, such as Google Scholar Citations, EndNote, Papers, etc.

To import a list of works saved in a BibTeX file into your ORCiD record:

  1. In the works section of your record go to Add works, then select Import BibTeX.

  2. Click Choose File to open the file menu, then select the BibTeX (.bib) file you want to import.

  3. The publications from the file will appear in a list. Select the save icon (disk) next to a work to add the work individually, the delete icon (trash bin) to delete the work individually, or Save all to add all of the publications at once.

  4. The publications will appear listed under works in your record.
