Trusted organizations

Welcome to ORCID > Visibility settings > Trusted parties > Trusted organizations


Introduction

When you connect your ORCID iD to another organization’s system, you will be asked to grant permission to that organization to interact with your ORCID account. For example, a publisher may request permission to get your ORCID iD when you submit a manuscript.

Granting permission to a trusted organization

Granting permission as a trusted organization

You decide whether to grant or deny permission to the organization. When you grant permission, that organization becomes a trusted organization and is listed in the Trusted organizations section of your account settings.

Watch our short video about how to connect your ORCID iD with research systems to grant access as a trusted organization.

List of trusted organizations


Permissions you can grant

The table below shows what permissions trusted organizations can request to get your ORCID iD, read your ORCID record, or update your ORCID record. Only ORCID member organizations may read trusted party data or update your ORCID record. This means that they have agreed to ORCID’s privacy policy and member terms.

Note that organizations will often request more than one permission.

The organization can also update or delete any items they have added. They cannot edit or delete items added by other trusted parties or by you.

  • Add or update your biographical information
  • Add a person identifier

Get your verified ORCID iD, and add biographical information to your record. This includes other names you are also known as, external identifiers, website links, country or region, and keywords. It does not include updating your biography.

The organization can also update or delete any items they have added. They cannot edit or delete items added by other trusted parties or by you.


Revoking permission

You can revoke permissions at any time. Go to the Trusted organizations section of your account settings page and click delete (the trash can icon) near the name of the organization whose access you want to revoke. Revoking this permission means the organization will only be able to read information on your record which you have set as visible to everyone, as well as information that they themselves have added. They will not be able to edit or delete any information that they have added.

How can I restore access to a trusted organization?

Once a trusted organization has been removed, you must grant them permissions again following the same process you originally used to give them access to your ORCID record.

For most organizations, you can do this by going to their website and clicking the link to reconnect your ORCID iD. If that doesn’t work, you'll need to contact the organization for a link to restore access. You can also contact us with information about which organization you want to grant trusted access, and we can help you.
