Confirming your iD by signing in to your ORCID record enables you to make a secure connection between your iD and your works and affiliations. However, some systems still allow users to enter ORCID iDs manually instead, even though we strongly recommend against this. If you are asked to manually enter your iD you will typically need to use one of the following formats:
- Full URL (http): http://orcid.org/0000-0003-0958-4367
- Full URL (https): https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0958-4367
- Numbers only, with hyphens: 0000-0003-0958-4367
We suggest that you try all these formats; if the system is still stating that your ORCID iD is invalid, you will need to reach out to the organization that is requesting your ORCID iD for further help.
