The most important thing to do with an ORCiD is ! 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.
Fill out your ORCiD profile with as much or as little information as you want. In addition to publications and other works, you might want to include:
You are not required to provide demographic data (age, gender, ethnicity), and all the information you add is under your control. Each section and entry can be set as public, limited, or private: you decide what to enter and what to display publicly. Establish the preferred form of your name, hide your old email addresses, or improve your findability with keywords.
ORCiD's Search & Link wizards allow you to import data about publications from databases such as Crossref and Scopus (ORCiD has a full list of supported databases on their site). Watch this video to learn how!
This link provides more information on allowing databases to automatically update your ORCID account.
Collect and connect allows publishers, funders, and institutions to sync information with ORCiD records: when you authorize a trusted party, you help validate the connections between you, your institution or funder, and your work. ORCiD calls it "a set of resources and guidelines for ORCiD integration and engagement." What does that mean for researchers? The more partners you authorize, the better the data sharing works, and the fewer times you have to enter information.
You can manually add works to your ORCiD profile. You may want to do this for presentations or other content that is not listed in databases such as Crossref.
To add a work click the Add works button then click the Add manually button.
You are required to include a Work Category, a Work Type, and a Title. For more information, take a look at ORCiD's help page for manually adding works, or check out the list of supported Work Types if you want guidance choosing which one to use.
