    For all who would like to import from EndNote:

    Please note that you can export BibTeX from EndNote and then import it into ORCID. Do note however that you will require a special filter. One has been provided by KAUST, see:

    Holly,

    Thanks for submitting your idea to improve the ORCID Registry. We agree that streamlining import of research activities into ORCID records is important.

    Integrating with another system requires a partnership; it is not something ORCID can do unilaterally. Regarding EndNote, ORCID has been working with the Thomson Reuters ResearcherID team since before the Registry was launched in October.

    Thomson Reuters launched the first phase of its integration just after launch, which allows an individual to link their ORCID iD to their Researcher ID profile. This is linkage can be done through the Researcher ID interface.

    Thomson Reuters is now working on the second phase of their ORCID integration. Due out in January, the second phase will allow individuals to import works metadata from their Researcher ID record into their ORCID record, and vice versa. This phase will also support import from an EndNote file.

    Stay tuned!

    Cheers,

    -Laure

        From desktop EndNote, it's possible to export your records in BibTex format. (Select the references, choose File|Export and specify BibTex as format and save in a text file - see EndNote help for more details).
        However, I found that several records in the exported file did not have a citation-key number and this seemed to cause ORCID import to fail. Using a text editor you can fix this. This record from EndNote is rejected by ORCID:
        @article{
        author = {Ng, Kok Yee and Koh, Christine and Ang, Soon and Kennedy, Jeffrey C. and Chan, Kim Yin},
        title = {Rating leniency and halo in multisource feedback ratings: Testing cultural assumptions of power distance and individualism-collectivism},
        journal = {Journal of Applied Psychology},
        volume = {96},
        number = {5},
        pages = {1033–1044},
        year = {2011}
        }

        Just by adding a citation-key to the first line, it is accepted (see below). It is important that you follow the key with a comma. Also some records have the key included by EndNote (it is the EndNote reference number), so won't need changing. This is the amended text file, which ORCID accepts - only change is in first line:

        @article{123,
        author = {Ng, Kok Yee and Koh, Christine and Ang, Soon and Kennedy, Jeffrey C. and Chan, Kim Yin},
        title = {Rating leniency and halo in multisource feedback ratings: Testing cultural assumptions of power distance and individualism-collectivism},
        journal = {Journal of Applied Psychology},
        volume = {96},
        number = {5},
        pages = {1033–1044},
        year = {2011}
        }

        See http://www.bibtex.org/Format/ for more on the format of the bibtex files.
