There are two ways you can recover your ORCID iD:
2. Through our recovery page:
a. Go to https://orcid.org/reset-password
b. Select ORCID iD
c. Enter the email address associated with your ORCID iD
d. Click on Recover account details
e. We will send you an email with the subject line [ORCID] Your ORCID iD
If the email says that we could not find an ORCID iD associated with the email address, then retry the process above with your other current email addresses (both personal and professional) to recover the ORCID iD. If you don’t find the email in your inbox, check your spam/junk mail folder.
If none of your current email addresses are registered and you are not sure whether you have a 16-digit ORCID iD, then try registering for a new ORCID iD at https://orcid.org/register. Our system will warn you if there is already an existing ORCID iD with your name which could possibly be yours.
Don’t have access to your associated email address and can’t remember your password?
