Watch our short video about how to import works into your ORCID record using a Search & Link wizard
Several ORCID members have built search and link tools that allow you to import information about publications and other works into your ORCID record from other databases. The linking process can begin on the ORCID site, or at the member's website. Note that ORCID does not store preprints or content. Rather we require that works data added to your record include a link that allows users to easily navigate to the source document.
To add works to your ORCID record using a Search & Link wizard, you must first grant access to the member organization's integration. Select the platform you want to use to import your works from the dropdown list. You'll be prompted to grant access to your ORCID record then taken to the member's website to select the works to add to your ORCID record. The relevant member will be listed as the source of the listing on your record.
