Edit works

Welcome to ORCID > Works, metadata, and peer review > Edit works

You can edit works that you have added to your record (manually or via BibTeX) yourself. Your name will be shown as the source for these works. Click on the “pencil” icon to open the editing window.

Edit my version

Works added by another source, such as via a Search & Link wizard, cannot be edited directly by you. Instead, you can use the copy and edit icon to create a copy of the information added by the third party source, which you can then edit. This copy will be saved as a new version of the work, with you as the source. Only works that have an external identifier can be copied.

Make a copy and edit

The bulk edit tool in the works menu allows you to change the visibility settings or delete multiple works at one time.
