There are two ways you can add and update email addresses associated with your ORCID account:
In your Account Settings at https://orcid.org/account click Edit next to Email and notification preferences.
In the Emails section of your ORCID record at https://orcid.org/my-orcid
We recommend registering at least two email addresses to your account; for example, your institutional email address and personal email address. This will enable you to have multiple methods of signing into your ORCID account and ensure that you’re never locked out. Learn more at sign into ORCID.
You can perform other actions such as editing, verifying or deleting an email address, or adding a new email address to the account:
- Primary Email
Each account has one email set as the Primary Email. This is where ORCID will send your inbox notifications, if you have opted to receive them, as well as service announcements about your account. You can change your primary email address by clicking on Make Primary next to the email address you want to use.
- Verify Email
The Verify Email button will send an email message to its associated address with a link you can follow to verify that you have access to that email address.
- Delete Email
If you want to delete an email address, click the delete icon (trash bin) next to that email address. Note: your primary email address cannot be deleted until you select another email address as your new primary email address.
- Visibility Settings
You can also control the visibility settings of each of your email addresses by using the visibility selector on the right hand side.
- Add New Email
To add a new email address to your account, type it in the Add Another Email box and click the Add button. A verification email will automatically be sent to that address. Learn more about verifying your email address.
- Edit Email
If you made a typo or added an incorrect email address, you can correct it by clicking the pencil icon next to it.
