Link accounts

The first time you sign in to your institutional or social media account from ORCID, you will be asked to sign in (if you have not already done so) using your ORCID username (email address or ORCID iD) and password, to confirm that the accounts should be linked. The two accounts will be linked once you’ve successfully signed in to both. After that, you may use your ORCID sign in details or any of the other linked accounts to access your ORCID record.

Alternative sign in accounts

You may link multiple institutional or other accounts to your ORCID account. Once linked, any of these may be used to access your ORCID record. To link multiple accounts, simply repeat the linking procedure for each additional account.

You can view the accounts that you have linked to your ORCID record in your account settings.
