ORCID: Steps to add works from ResearcherID to ORCID

Introduction

After you registered an ORCID iD, the next step is to add works and publications to your profile so that you can reap the benefits that your ORCID iD brings.

One of the ways to add publications is to link with ReseacherID. Unlike Scopus, you have to first create an ResearcherID (from Web of Science) on you own and populate your ResearcherID profile with works indexed in Web of Science. After building your ResearcherID profile, you can then import the publication list to your ORCID iD. To know the traditional ways to enrich ResearcherID profile, read here.

This page outlines

Steps to Exchange Works between ResearcherID and ORCID


► Step 1. Login to your ORCID

  • Under Works, click “+ Add Works” and then “Search & link"


► Step 2. Choose "ResearcherID"


► Step 3. Authorize ResearcherID to access your ORCID record

Check if it is your ORCID account. If not, click "Not You" to log in.


► Step 4. Login to your ResearcherID account

Log in to your account. If you haven’t registered an account, click "Join Now It’s Free" to create one.


► Step 5. Send ResearcherID publications to ORCID

Both biographical information and publications can be exchanged between your ORCID and Researcher ID accounts. If your ResearcherID profile is more thorough than your ORCID profile, choose "Send ResearcherID publications to my ORCID account"; if you have already had publications in ORCID (e.g. integrated with Scopus), you may also choose to "Retrieve ORCID publications into my ResearcherID account". 

In this example, we select the first one - to push publications from ResearcherID to ORCID.


► Step 6. Select the work(s) that you would like to send to ORCID


The record(s) is now sent to ORCID. Now you will see your works added to your ORCID profile.


To further edit the publication information in your ORCID profile, click "Make a copy and edit" button to make changes.


► Step 5. Send ORCID publications to ResearcherID

Both biographical information and publications can be exchanged between your ORCID and Researcher ID accounts. If your ResearcherID profile is more thorough than your ORCID profile, choose "Send ResearcherID publications to my ORCID account"; if you have already had publications in ORCID (e.g. integrated with Scopus), you may also choose to "Retrieve ORCID publications into my ResearcherID account". 

In this example, suppose your ORCID profile has been enriched through integration with Scopus, and now it is ready to push publications to ResearcherID.


► Step 6. Select the work(s) that you would like to send to ORCID


The record(s) is now added to your ResearcherID profile.


To further edit the publication information in your ResearcherID profile, click "Manage List" and then "Manage Lists with EndNote". You can update the bibliographical fields of any record through EndNote online.


► Step 5. Exchange biographical data between ResearcherID and ORCID

Both biographical information and publications can be exchanged between your ORCID and Researcher ID accounts. 

In this example, suppose you have a complete bio data in ResearcherID and would like to sync them to ORCID. Choose "Profile data" and go.


► Step 6. Sync the data between ResearcherID and ORCID

Select the fields you wish to sync information to ORCID, then click "Send To ORCID" (and vice versa).

Outcomes of the linking process

After you have integrated ORCID with ResearcherID

  • your publications will be imported into ORCID profile from ResearcherID account (the process is reciprocal)
  • your biographical information can be exchanged between ResearcherID and ORCID
  • your ResearcherID and ORCID iD will be linked and displayed on both platforms (see snapshot below)
  • your publication list can be searched using your ResearcherID or ORCID iD on both Web of Science and ORCID platforms.

Tips

  • Publications that are not indexed in Web of Science can also be manually added to ResearcherID and then imported into ORCID. 
  • ORCID platform will not display citation count of works. Nevertheless, it lets you seamlessly link to your profiles in Researcher ID, hence allowing you to quickly obtain citation numbers for your publications. 

There are two ways to do so:

(1)  Click the URL of the work which has been added to your ORCID profile. Given that the works are indexed by Web of Science, it will bring you to the database page and you will see the number of time cited of your works.

(2)  When your ORCID profile is associated with Researcher ID (from Web of Science), you will find the ID (with hyperlink) is displayed on your ORCID, by clicking the ID, you will be brought to the author profile page and you can find the author citation metrics.

  • Publications that are manually added to ResearcherID will not have citation counts.
Publications in your ResearcherID can include items not indexed in Web of Science and they can still be imported into ORCID. - See more at: http://www.library.auckland.ac.nz/services/research-support/orcid#=5
