ORCID & Researcher Identifiers

Establish your researcher identity with Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID). This guide will provide information on how to connect and create your ORCID and how to keep your research profile up to date.

Import Works

Flinders University's ORCID implementation allows the University to push and pull information between RMIS and ORCID.

Flinders will push data from the RMIS into your ORCID profile. Publications added to your OCRID profile from other sources such as Scopus or Web of Science can be extracted and added to RMIS automatically.

You can choose to use ORCID in the most effective way for you.

Push: If you have your publications list up-to-date in RMIS, then simply wait for the University to push that information over to your ORCID profile.

Pull: If your publications list in RMIS is not up-to-date, importing your works using ORCID is the easiest option for you. Once you've updated your ORCID profile you can simply wait for the University to pull that information into RMIS.

Scopus to ORCID

This feature helps you quickly set up your ORCID record by importing profile details and your publication list from Scopus. The wizard helps you find your correct author profile in Scopus and confirm the list of publications before it is sent to ORCID. Any changes you make here are also submitted as corrections to Scopus.

1. From Link Works select Scopus to ORCID.
2. Authorise access.

3. Select your profile.

4. Select your preferred profile name.

5. Review your authored publications, unselect those that don't belong to you.

6. Review your Scopus profile, changes made here will update your Scopus profile.

7. Send the Scopus Author ID

8. Go back to your ORCID record.

Connect your Researcher ID with your ORCID iD

1. From Link Works select Researcher ID

2. Select Authorize access

3. Log in to your Researcher ID account

4. Associate an ORCID account with ResearcherID

See the 5 minute Researcher ID (Thomson Reuters) Integration Tutorial.

Add Works

You can add works to your ORCID record in three ways:

ORCID has created partnerships with our members to allow users to import publications into their ORCID record from outside databases.  The linking process can begin either on the ORCID site with the Search and link tool under Add works, or at the member's website and will require you to grant access to the member organization before the works are added.


Add Works via Link Works

Click on the appropriate member organisation in the link works list to add works via this method.


Authorise the Member Organisation

You will need to explicitly grant permission to each member organisation before it can have any access to your record.

To grant this permission, you will be presented with a screen that describes what level of access is being requested, and you can choose to accept or deny this request


Deleting works

Next to each version of work in your record there are buttons to for the privacy setting and a icon of a trash can.  Click on the trash can icon to delete a work in your record, you will be asked to confirm the deletion before it is removed. Works can also be deleted using the Bulk edit functionality.


Managing permissions

Once permission has been granted, you may revoke the access at any time by logging into your ORCID account, going to the Account Settings page, and clicking the trash can icon next to the item you wish to revoke.

Exporting BibTeX Files from Google Scholar

At present there is no way to directly connect your Google Scholar profile with your ORCID iD. However, it is possible to export your citations from Google Scholar and import them into your ORCID iD. This is particularly useful if you have painstakingly curated your Google Scholar profile for accuracy and completeness. If you have a Google Scholar Citations profile, you can export a list of publications from your profile to a BibTeX file. Note: ORCID does not maintain or provide support for Google Scholar. If you have questions about creating, accessing or managing your Google Scholar profile, see Google Scholar Citations help documents or contact Google Scholar

  1. Visit http://scholar.google.com and click My Citations at the top of the page. Sign in to your account, if prompted.


     
  2. On your My Citations page, select articles to export by clicking the checkbox beside each article. To select all articles in your My Citations list, click the checkbox at the top of the list.


     
  3. Once you have selected the articles you'd like to export, click the Export button, then choose BibTeX.


     
  4. In the dialog box that appears, click the Save button to save the file to your computer. (Note: Depending on your operating system, your screen may look different from the image below)


Importing BibTeX Files into ORCID

To import a list of publications saved in a BibTeX (.bib) file into your ORCID record:

  1. Log into your ORCID record at http://orcid.org/signin
     
  2. In Works section of your record go to Add works then Import BibTeX.

     
  3. In the view that opens, click Choose File

     
  4. When your computer's file browser opens, select a BibTeX (.bib) file from your computer and click open. (Note: Depending on your operating system, your screen may look different from the image below)


     
  5. The publications from the file will appear in a list with Save/Delete icons beside them:
    Important! Your import is not complete until you have saved each of the publications that you wish to add to your ORCID record.
     
    • To Save a citation to your record, click the Save icon. You will be prompted to edit the citation; after making any needed changes, click Add to List to save the citation to your ORCID record.


       
    • To Delete a citation from the import list, click the Delete (trash can) icon.


       
    • To Cancel the entire import, click the Cancel button above the list of citations.

Authorise 'Write' Access

Authorise CrossRef Write Access

CrossRef will now push information to your ORCID record automatically. What does this mean? If you authorise CrossRef to update your ORCID record, if you add your ORCID to a paper submission, when your publication gets a DOI, your ORCID record will be updated automatically.

1. Log in to your ORCID record and navigate to Works, click on Add Some New. Scroll down list and select CrossRef Metadata Search.

2. Select Authorise Access

3. You can choose to import works at this point or simply close the window.

4. Go to Account settings to check that you've authorised 'write access'.

5. Scroll down the 'Trusted organisation list' until you locate Crossref. Ensure it is authorised to 'add works'.

Authorise DataCite Write Access

DataCite will now push information to your ORCID record automatically. What does this mean? If you authorise DataCite to update your ORCID record, if you add your ORCID to a dataset submission, when your dataset gets a DOI, your ORCID record will be updated automatically.

1. Log in to your ORCID record and navigate to Works, click on Add Some New. Scroll down list and select CrossRef Metadata Search.

2. Select Authorise Access

3. You can choose to search & import datasets at this point or simply close the window.
