Welcome to ORCID > Building your ORCID record and connecting your iD
The trust-building and time-saving power of your ORCID iD is unlocked when you connect your iD and enable information to flow into your record. Your name, published name, biography, and email addresses need to be added manually, but all other fields can be populated by connecting your iD with other information systems.
Include your iD when prompted to do so in manuscript submission systems, grant applications, your institution’s research information management system, and many more and, with your permission, your information can be exchanged between these systems so you don’t have to enter it manually. This saves you time and ensures the use of quality data that you have approved and your organizations have certified.
