ORCID: New Users who do not have an ORCID account

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

New Users who do not have an ORCID account and would like to create one

If you are new to ORCID and haven't got an ORCID account, follow the steps below to create an ORCID account and in the meantime authorize the Library to update publication records for you.

Step 1. Click on the button below to register via Library

Step 2. Login with your NetID and NetPassword

Step 3. Register a new account by filling in a form

Step 4. Authorize the Library to update your ORCID records

Granting authorization to the Library will enable automating the population process with publication records from PolyU Institutional Research Archive. This ensures that your ORCID profile is enriched from multiple sources, in addition to Scopus. The Library will notify users before making any changes.

Contact us if you encounter any problems (e.g. Registration Error) at this stage. Please include your ORCID iD in the email.

Step 5. Verify your ORCID registration

You will receive a verification email shortly. Click on "Verify your email address" link to complete the registration process.

How to check if the authorization has been done

After you have completed the steps above, you will see...

  • A new Employment entry (for staff) or Education entry (for students) is added to your ORCID profile. The source of the entry is "Pao Yue-kong Library, Hong Kong Polytechnic University".


  • Also, the Library is added as a "Trusted organization" in your ORCID account. (Login ORCID > Account Settings > Trusted organizations)
