    The matching system currently seems to have other defects too - it seems to let you add the same reference multiple times which should be impossible - one of the key points is to maintain a non redundant reference list. Agree should be possible to delete wrong suggestions.

    Please further explain what is meant by "search criteria". Search of what?

    This metadata import can be done via CrossRef.

    This is just a guess but it appears that CrossRef suggestions are supplied via the CrossRef Metadata Search (which is a great service, btw!). So, to fix the issues with suggesting relevant publications for a certain author name, it would be nice if the CrossRef Metadata Search would be improved accordingly. This could be done by allowing to filter (facet) results by author name. The (optional) inclusion of any author-supplied keywords would also improve the metadata search results.

    Please choose a solution that will also get metadata for DataCite DOIs? Thanks :)

    Search criteria should include article title, journal and other citation details. With these details the search engine should be able to identify the article and add to the list of member. This is similar to search facility available with Researcher ID and Scopus authors list.

    I also agree, I also had strange results with article info that were wrong from the crossref search: title not good, or journal volume wrong.

    I strongly support the suggestion of removing from the search list papers already imported using the same tool, or even better, papers with DOIs already included in the author profile. Thanks for the clearly good work you are doing

    For me, the automatic search function was appallingly bad. Despite having my first name entered in your system, the search is suggesting papers for authors with first names starting with different letters. So, of the papers suggested, only one is actually mine, and without the ability to mark papers as not mine, all these others clutter the search interface with irrelevant papers, assuming the search ever pulls up any of my other publications. It also seems that you should be able to add a paper using a PubMed ID (PMID). I don't have a ResearchID profile, but I do have a list of my publications that includes the PMIDs. If I could search by PMID, and then mark to add, I would do this. But, there is no way I am going to manually add publications that are indexed in PubMed.

    The existing tools are incredibly frustrating. An imperfect but far more stream-lined tool for adding publications is illustrated by http://impactstory.org/create The three things listed in this issue would be excellent improvements (though the 1st and 3rd seem closely related). In addition a variety of further improvements could be made to the interface: 1. I would like to paste a series of identifiers and have the articles imported. Ideally with a little regexpr you should be able to support multiple identifiers in such a list, not just DOIs. 2. When manually entering an object, I would like to simply add the identifier and have the metadata imported into the remaining fields if possible (as it is for many of the identifiers you list, as illustrated by, say, Mendeley Desktop tool). I would then be able to edit/correct metadata if necessary there as well. 3. I would like a much more compact view of my articles in both the "Search" and "already added" windows. Ideally these would be in table formats that I could sort by journal, year, etc, to make it easy to find the one I am looking for. 4. The CrossRef search does not turn up many of my recent publications that are indeed in CrossRef with CrossRef DOIs. 5. Be able to import references from a bibtex file

    There are several publications that show up in CrossRef that I'm unable to add to my ORCID. I have added many smoothly, but some just won't add.

    We've marking this iDea as complete as the CrossRef Metadata Search at http://search.crossref.org/ addresses most of these suggestions. The CrossRef Metadata Search allows users to easily search for works on a variety of criteria including DOI, and import it into their ORCID record. Works already added via the search are listed as already being in your ORCID record.

    For the suggestion of adding multiple works in one step see the iDea at http://support.orcid.org/forums/175591-orcid-ideas-forum/suggestions/3265823-allow-a-list-of-valid-ids-dois-pmids-to-be-past

    For any commenters who have had issues adding works from the CrossRef Metadata Search, please let us know the DOIs of the articles that failed to import and we can follow up with CrossRef to resolve the problem.

    Best,
    -Catalina
