Link works to your ORCID record from another system



General information about adding works to your ORCID record can be found at Add Works.

ORCID has created partnerships with our members to allow users to import publications and other works into their ORCID record from outside databases. The linking process can begin either on the ORCID site via our Search and link tools, or at the member's website. Before works can be added to your ORCID record, you must first grant access to the member organization's integration.

Works visibility settings

Set the default visibility level for newly added items to your ORCID record in the Privacy Preferences under Account Settings. Choose from three options:  

  • Everyone: Public information that anyone who looks at your record can see.
  • Trusted Party: Information only made available to organizations that you specifically allow to access your record.
  • Only me: Private information that no one but you can see.
The visibility level on works already on your ORCID record can be changed directly on your ORCID record. To learn more, read about the ORCID visibility settings or read our privacy policy.

Search & link tools

Watch this video to learn how to add works to your ORCID record using our Search & Link wizards.
