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 (users can manually add their own contributor role but cannot add other contributors). Information about adding works using Search and Link wizards can be found at Add works by direct import from other systems
To add a work manually, start from the Works header, click +Add, 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.
We recommend completing the Work identifiers field and as many other fields as possible when adding a work. The work identifier 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 Save changes 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.
