Granting access to trusted organizations

One of ORCID's core principles is researcher control of your ORCID record, including deciding which organizations can verify your ORCID iD and read, add, and update your information.

When you connect your ORCID iD to another organization’s system, for example when submitting a manuscript or grant application, you will see an authorization screen asking you to grant permission to that organization to interact with your iD and record.

Permission granted per access

The table below shows what permission you are giving to the organization. Note that organizations will often request more than one permission.

You can also see more information about each permission by hovering over it on the authorization screen.
