    I add that it would be important to edit and merge also the records imported from researcherID, Scopus, CorssRef and others. For example to add short comments and notes, or to insert the DOI where it was missing (it weirdly happen for some papers imported from Scopus). Also, it would be important to collect the same paper imported from different entities under the same entry, either manually and automatically (DOI match).

    ORCID Support, You responded to this in December 2012, about 10 months ago. There's still no option to edit publications. It makes it difficult for a user to adopt your site if it's missing, and continues to miss, such an obvious feature.

    Hello, Is there an progress on the editing function? I have just added an entry and need to correct a minor error. At the moment, my only recourse is to delete -- the ORCID system will have limited use without this functionality. Many thanks.

    The best (and easiest) way to proceed with this problem would be adding a button "to remove all publications" - this will provide an opportunity to export publications from other databases, such as Google scholar, Scopus, Research ID, Mendeley, etc, in which the problem of publication editing has been solved.

    it's a while ago since this request was posted (18 months). is it still planned to add this functionality (to edit manually added works in publications' list)?

    It's astonishing that after almost 2 years such a basic functionality is still missing and not even started to be worked on. Shame! The website should have never gone publicly online without it. You cannot seriously expect users to delete and re-add stuff because they forgot something or made some silly mistake. This is simply unbelievable.

    September, 2014, still no editing, or even a wiki-like preview before committing an entry. Too bad... I had some manual entries ready to list, but won't add them as things stand. Easy to see why competitors like ResearchGate (though more obnoxious in other ways) are eating Orcid's lunch.

    It is now almost 2 years from when this was originally suggested. Do we have the ability to edit manually entered publications yet? I still don't see it. Thank you.

    Yes, the ORCID support team is fast to answer on requests but not fast to actually do something about them. I would like to see ORCID grow, because the idea is great but the user interface and the usability of the website is not there yet.

    We’ve just released a new interface for ORCID records that allows editing of publications which you entered and allows you to make a copy and edit publications added from a third party source.

    The announcement for the new interface is at http://orcid.org/blog/2014/12/11/new-feature-friday-new-orcid-record-interface

    Best,
