1. Search & link

This best practice method allows you to add works by directly importing links to your publications and other works to your ORCID record from other database systems. This is the recommended process because it reduces or eliminates errors, allows for the addition of contributor information with works, and enables a reliable connection between your ORCID iD and your works. Select a preferred tool to start. If you are not sure which tool to select, try linking to CrossRef and Scopus; both of these sources cover journals from a broad range of disciplines and are likely to cover many of the journals you publish in. For more information, see the ORCID Support page on how to Add works by direct import from other systems.
