  • Names: Add different variants of your name so that all of your work can be found
  • Biographical information: such as education and employment history
  • Professional affiliation: This helps anyone searching for your name to know it's you
  • Keywords: these describe your research interests
  • Websites: add links to other systems that you use, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, ResearcherID, blog, personal or institution website
  • Email: you can provide alternative email addresses

You can choose different privacy settings for all entries individually.

Enter your grants

It is also possible to add grant data manually to your ORCID record.

Enter your works

Once you have created your ORCID account you can add your works to your record. 

  • Publications (journal articles, books, reports, dissertations, newspaper articles, websites, working papers etc.)
  • Conference materials (paper, abstract, poster)
