Getting Started with ORCID

Learn how to set up your ORCID Researcher Profile

Populating ORCID

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

  • Supports a variety of work types (publications, conferences, intellectual property)

BibTeX Import - Import records directly from databases and reference management tools

  • Supported tools include Web of Science, Google Scholar, & EndNote
  • Detailed instructions for specific tools are available below.


See the guide Adding Works to Your ORCID Record for more information.

Importing from Web of Science

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

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

Importing from Reference Management Software

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
