oricid logo. Connecting Research and Researchers

ORCID is a not for profit organization that provides a unique identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research and scholarship. ORCID stands for Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier.

By adding publications to your ORCID record, you will make it easier for the OSU Experts Directory to automatically include those works in your Directory profile.

See also ORCID's help page on adding works.

 

 

Add Works

Several organizations have built tools allowing you to import information about your publications directly into ORCID. To use these tools from your ORCID profile, click on Add works > Search & Link.

Drop down menu from ORCID Add Works, highlighting Search and Link

 

Select one of the methods below to add works to your ORCID record:

 

​Add works by direct import from Scopus

  • From the Add Works > Search & Link tool in ORCID, select Scopus - Elsevier.
  • Authorize Scopus to make changes to your ORCID record on your behalf. A search will then automatically run in Scopus based on your name. If you have a particularly common name, there may be multiple results.
    • Review the results. Click Show recent documents.
    • Click the check box next to the names that represent you, then click Next.
    • Verify the profile name and click Next again.
    • Review the publications. Click the X next to any publications that are not yours. Click Next.
    • Enter your email address to send your Scopus ID to ORCID.
  • To increase the accuracy of the Scopus search algorithm, see the Curate your Scopus Author ID module.

 

Add works by direct import from MLA International Bibliography

  • From the Add Works > Search & Link tool in ORCID, select MLA International Bibliography.
  • Authorize MLA to make changes to your ORCID record on your behalf. MLA will populate a search tool with your name and any name variants you have entered into ORCID. Click Find Works.
    • Review the results. Use the filters on the left side, if necessary.
    • As you see works that you have authored, click Add to ORCID.
    • The works will now automatically be added to your ORCID record. 
    • Review the item details and make any necessary corrections.

 

Importing from Other Systems

In addition to Scopus and MLA International Bibliography, a number of other systems also can import directly into your ORCID profile, including Airiti, BASE, Crossref, DataCite, Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Europe PMC, ISNI, KoreaMed, Redalyc, Research Data Australia, & Researcher ID.

 

Adding DOI

  • If a work you have written has been assigned a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), you can look it up in ORCID by clicking Add works > Add DOI.
  • Type or paste the DOI into the search box and click Retrieve work details.
  • Review the item details and make any necessary corrections. Then click Add to list.

 

Adding PubMed ID or PubMed URL

  • If a work you have authored is indexed in PubMed, you can add it to your ORCID record using the PubMed ID or the full PubMed URL.
  • Click Add works > Add PubMed ID.
  • Type the PubMed ID (e.g. 27158456) or the PubMed URL (e.g. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27158456). Click Retrieve work details.
  • The PubMed ID can be found following the abstract on a PubMed record:
  • Review the item details and make any necessary corrections. Then click Add to list.
