What is ORCID and how it helps in managing your research activities throughout your career?

Sign in from Personal Account

  • Step 1. Start at sign in page and select the Personal account tab.
  • Step 2. Type in your ORCID ID or email and password to log in.
    If you forgot your password or you are not sure if you have registered an ORCID account, click "Forgotten your password? Reset it here" to retrieve your password via email.

Sign in from Institutional Account -- NEW!

Signing in from Institutional Account lets you link an ORCID account to PolyU NetID. This means you only need to remember one set of password (your NetID and NetPassword) in future. After you leave PolyU, you can still sign in to ORCID using your ORCID password.

To enable Institutional account sign in, please follow the steps below:

  • Step 1. Start at sign in page and select the Institutional account tab.
  • Step 2. Type in "The Hong Kong Polytechnic University" and select it from the dropdown list. Then click "Continue".
  • Step 3. You will then be redirected to the PolyU's sign in page. Login with your NetID and NetPassword.


  • Step 4. Type in your ORCID ID or email to link your existing ORCID with PolyU. If you haven't got an ORCID account, click "Register for an ORCID iD" to register one first.

Upon your next login into ORCID, simply click on "The Hong Kong Polytechnic University" icon and sign in with your NetID and NetPassword.

You may choose to remove the linkage between your ORCID account and PolyU after you leave PolyU. 
Go to Account SettingsAlternate sign in accounts (at the bottom), and then click on trash bin icon to unlink account.
