To add a work yourself, click Add works, then +Add manually, and a box will appear enabling you to complete for a manual work citation. See our works metadata article for a description of all the fields.
Tip: Do not click outside the box, or your work will be lost!
We strongly recommend that you use the works Search and Link wizards, or connections in private systems (such as your institution) to import works, rather than relying on manual entry. Wizards reduce or eliminate data errors, enable reliable links between your ORCID iD and your works, and allow for the addition of contributor information with works. Information about adding works using Search and Link wizards can be found at Add works by direct import from other systems
We recommend completing the work ID field as many other fields as possible when adding a work. The work ID can be a DOI, ISBN, URL, ARK, or other resolvable identifier. When you enter an identifier, our system will check the identifier's source to see whether it is valid. If it is not valid, you will receive an error message. You can still save a work even if an error message is displayed.
You can also select a visibility setting for the work. If you don’t, the item visibility will be set to your default preferred visibility.
After you have completed the form, click the add to list button at the bottom of the window. After you have added a work to your record, it will display on the main page of your ORCID record under the Works heading. Your name will be shown as the source of information.
