To capture future work, make sure to include your ORCID when submitting your work to publishers and granting agencies. You may be asked to authorize these organizations to update your ORCID profile. Doing so will ensure that your ORCID is always up to date.
To capture past work, ORCID provides two options:
Manual Entry - Enter work details manually
BibTeX Import - Import records directly from databases and reference management tools
See the guide Adding Works to Your ORCID Record for more information.
Perform author search > Select relevant records > "Save to Other File Format" > Select "BibTex" > In ORCID, "Import from BibTex" > Select Appropriate File
Importing from Google Scholar requires you to have a Google Scholar Profile:
Create Google Scholar Profile > Select All Records > "Export" > Select "BibTex" > In ORCID, "Import from BibTex" > Select Appropriate File
Most reference management software (EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero, etc.) will allow you to export records as a BibTeX file.
Select the records you want to add to ORCID, click "Export", and select the BibTeX file format. This will download a file onto your computer that you can then upload to ORCID using the following steps:
Select Publications to Export > Click "Export" and Select the BibTex File Format > In ORCID, "Import from BibTex" > Select Appropriate File
