Your ORCID record can be linked to multiple external websites such as a personal website, department profile, Wikipedia page, or social media accounts such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and others.
You can add these website links yourself, and systems that you grant permission to edit your ORCID record can also add website links.
Website links are added by clicking on the pencil icon next to the Website header in the left menu on your personal ORCID record.
Click the + Add icon to add a new website entry. Each website entry must include data in both the Description and URL boxes.
- Description: The text displayed on your record to designate the link; it should be kept brief.
- URL: The full URL of the website, including protocol (http:// or https://). It must include a valid domain (i.e. no underscores). It cannot be the same URL of a website already in your list, otherwise the website entry will not save.
You can reorder the list by clicking the up or down icons next to each link.
You can control who is able to see your webpages by changing the visibility settings, either changing the visibility for each individual website link, or changing all visibility settings at once.
You can also delete any of the links by clicking the rubbish bin icon next to it.
