Works are your research outputs, including publications, data sets, conference presentations, and more.
The maximum number of works you can add to your ORCID record is 10,000. This helps avoid performance issues on the ORCID Registry. If you exceed this limit, you will see an error message asking you to remove some works and try again.
To help your record load more quickly, only the first 50 works are displayed by default. You can display up to 100 works on the same page by changing the "Items per page" setting, or navigate to the next page by clicking the arrow icon.
There are five different options to add works to your ORCID record: Search & link, Add DOI, Add PubMed ID, Add BibTex, and Add manually.
When you're signed into your ORCID account, you'll find these options by going to the Works section and clicking on +Add on the header.
Adding Multiple Works
To import multiple works at once, use one of the following two options:
Search & link (recommended)
Import your publications with just a few clicks from connected databases such as Scopus and Crossref Metadata Search (see the full list of available databases).
We recommend that you permit trusted organizations to add/update this information to add and update them for you - look for the green iD icon next time you submit a paper, book chapter, or book (learn more about auto-updates).
Allowing trusted organizations to add information to your record ensures the data connected with your ORCID iD is authoritative and trustworthy, as well as saving you time entering information manually. The organization which added the work to your record will be listed as the source of the item.
For more detailed information about Search & link, see Importing works from other systems.
This option has some limitations. Please see BibTex issues and troubleshooting
For detailed steps on how to import works using BibTex, see Importing works using BibTex.
Adding an Individual Work
To add or import a single work, or individual works one by one, use one of the following two options:
Add DOI / Add PubMed ID
Import the work by entering its DOI or PMID.
For detailed instructions, see Add works using an Identifier.
If your work doesn't have a DOI or PMID, you can manually add its information.
For detailed instructions to, see Add works manually.
