What are auto-updates?

ORCID now supports long-lasting permissions, allowing you to grant access for a single transaction or until you revoke permission to the application. 

This means that information where you included your ORCID iD during the submission process—manuscripts, grants, datasets, your thesis—can automatically flow into your record upon publication, grant, or award.

ORCID’s key goal has always been to unambiguously identify researchers and provide tools to automate the connection between researchers and their works. We have taken a big step towards achieving this goal with the launch of Auto-Update functionality in collaboration with Crossref and DataCite.
