Link works to your ORCID record from another system



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

ORCID has created partnerships with our members to allow users to import publications 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 anyone who looks at your record can see.
  • Trusted Party: Information only made available to organizations to which you have specifically granted access.
  • 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.
