ORCID: ORCID Registration and Authorization


Other than creating a ORCID account, it is also important that you populate the ORCID account with your publication record. You could also authorize the Library with the rights to populate your account. This will maximise the benefits of having an ORCID account.

Here are the steps for 2 different types of users:

New Users who do not have an ORCID account - If you are new to ORCID and do not have an ORCID account, follow the steps to create an ORCID account and authorize the Library to update record for you.

Existing Users who have an ORCID account - If you have already created an ORCID account and it is not registered with your PolyU email, follow the steps to connect your existing account with PolyU and authorize the Library to update your record.
