How to import works in ORCID 

Works are your research outputs: publications, data sets, conference presentations, videos... Allowing trusted organizations to add information to your record ensures the data connected with your ORCID iD is trustworthy, as well as saving you time entering information manually.

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

  • Add works by direct import from other systems to import links to your publications and other works to your ORCID record from other databases. This is the recommended process because it reduces or eliminates errors, and enables a reliable connection between your ORCID iD and your works.
  • Add works using an identifier
  • Importing works from a BibTeX file
  • Add works manually
