To recover your 16-digit ORCID iD:
- Visit https://orcid.org/reset-password
- Select the ORCID iD option
- Enter your email address
- Select Recover account details
- Look for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org 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. (To prevent this, we recommend adding multiple email addresses to your ORCID account.)
If none of your current email addresses are registered and you know your 16-digit ORCID iD, then please contact us.
If none of your current email addresses are registered and you are not sure whether you have a 16-digit ORCID iD, then please try registering for a new ORCID iD. Our system will warn you if there is already an existing ORCID iD with your name which could possibly be yours.
