Adding Works

There are three ways to add works to your ORCID record:

  1. Link your works from another system (recommended)
  2. Import a BibTeX file of your works
  3. Manually type in information about your works

To link works from another system, choose Search & link from the Add works menu in the works portion of your record:

Adding works in ORCID record

Search and link your works to ORCID record

Select a system from the list (CrossRef is a good general source, others will depend on your discipline). You'll be asked to authorize the system, and will then be able to identify works in that system that are yours and that you would like transferred to your record. Each system behaves a little differently, and there may be a couple of intermediate steps not described here. ORCID can import your works from any of the following:

  • Airiti
  • BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine)
  • Crossref Metadata Search
  • DataCite
  • Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB)
  • Europe PubMed Central
  • ISNI
  • JaLC
  • KoreaMed
  • MLA International Bibliography
  • Redalyc
  • Research Data Australia
  • ResearcherID (Clarivate)
  • Scopus (Elsevier)

For more information, see Add works by direct import from other systems in the ORCID Knowledge Base.

To import a BibTeX file of your works, choose Import BibTeX from the Add works menu in the works portion of your record, and import the file. For more information, see Importing Works from a BibTeX File in the ORCID Knowledge Base.

Add BibTeX records to your ORCID record

To manually type in information about your works, choose Add manually from the Add works menu in the works portion of your record, and complete the pop-up form to describe a work. For more information, see Add works manually in the ORCID Knowledge Base.

Control the visibility of information in your ORCID record

You may control how much of your ORCID record is publicly visible. For both your personal information and information about your works, three settings are available:

  • Public or Everyone: Information marked as everyone can be viewed by anyone who comes to the orcid.org website or consumed by anyone using the ORCID public API.

ORCID Visible to Everyone setting

  • Trusted parties: Information marked as Trusted is visible only to trusted organizations and  individuals you authorize.

ORCID Visible to Trusted Parties setting

  • Private: Information can only be seen by you and trusted individuals you have granted access to help administer your ORCID record on your behalf.

ORCID Visible to Me setting
