ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributer ID) is a registry of unique identifiers for researchers and scholars. Anyone can sign up for a free account and receive their unique 16-digit identifier in minutes.  Signing up for an ORCID identifier and using it in your research workflows will ensure that you receive credit for your work.

Create your ORCiD profile

  1. Go to ORCID.
  2. Register for a personal account or login by selecting "Access through Your Institution".
  3. Make sure your account is set to public.
  4. Select Add Employment, Add Manually. When you enter your institution, the form should begin to auto fill with the name of your organization
  5. Fill out the rest of your employment information and select Add to list. 

Add Your Publications to ORCiD

  1. Login to ORCiD
  2. Under "Works", choose "Add".
  3. "Search and Link"
  4.  Choose Scopus - Elsevier.
  5. You will go through a wizard to identify your Scopus profile and claim your publications. More details on this process are available on the Scopus help website here.

Grant Permission to Others to Update Your ORCiD

We know that faculty have many teaching, research, and clinical responsibilities and may not have time to keep their ORCID record up to date. You can grant permission to colleagues that may be helping you keep your research profiles up to date (e.g. Support Staff, Departmental administrators).

Please review the instructions on how to add a trusted individual to update your account on your behalf.

How to Use Your ORCID

Once you have an ORCID iD, be sure to let everyone know about it! Include your 16 digit ORCID in these ways:

  • Add ORCiD to your Scopus Profile
  • E-mail Signature
  • Personal Websites or Blogs
  • On Your Resume

ORCID recommends that you display your ORCID iD as a URL, e.g.:
