    Hi,

    We’ve just released a new tool that will let you add publications to your ORCID record from Google Scholar and other databases that can export a BibTeX file. We are not able to offer a tool for automatic import (like those available from other database under the Link Work button) as these tools require a partnership between ORCID and other database. Instead, we’ve designed a new feature to allow uploading BibTeX files, which is an export format Google Scholar supports. Full instructions on how to export your citations from Google Scholar and add them to your ORCID record are at http://support.orcid.org/knowledgebase/articles/390530

    Best,

        My google Scholar citations does not have the option to check boxes down the left hand side or upload to any file type under this page. When I tried going to my citations it thought I wanted to set up a new profile rather than setting it up to export it. Does that mean that this is no longer compatible?

        Thank you

        What do we do after citations.bib file is created?? How does one add it to ORCID?? Would you please explain.

        I'm going to see Anurag from GS at a conference soon, so maybe I'll try to chat him up about this.

        Of course, I feel compelled to mention that Mendeley does have an open API, consistent author metadata, and is quite nice to work with, should you want to implement Mendeley profile import first.

        Although it is complicated to work with Google to achieve seamless integration, even without collaboration ORCID could display instructions for how users can Export their Google Scholar profiles as bibtex and then upload that to ORCID. (ImpactStory does this: see "Click here for help" at http://impactstory.org/create)

        Google Scholar are pretty terrible to deal with (I know from academic informatics research & a colleague from informatics industry confirms). Hope they change their outlook.

        Alas, Google Scholar and the profile pages don't seem to have a standard structure for article metadata. Author first and last names are sometimes reversed, etc.

        Support for Google Scholar profile import is difficult since they don't provide an API to access the data.
