Now you’re ready to start adding information to your ORCID page!
There are six fields in ORCID where you can build a summary of your professional experience.
Enter your education history here. Your higher education record will suffice.
Where do you work? Where have you worked? Add your professional history in this field.
ORCID has a feature that automatically searches Uberwizard for your grant history and links it up to your account. You can also add your funding history manually.
Cite publications you’ve authored or co-authored here. ORCID’s “search and link” tool allows you to search a dozen ORCID member organizations for publications you’ve authored. If you prefer, you can also import a BibTeX file, or simply enter your publication history manually. For complete instructions on updating your works, automatically or manually, see this link.
You may choose to grant ORCID-affiliated organizations you trust permission to automatically update your information.
For instance, if you publish an article in a journal that belongs to an ORCID-affiliated repository, they can tie their own entry for that article to your ORCID iD, and it will appear on your profile without you having to add it yourself.
The publisher can also add your ORCID iD to the byline of the article itself, giving your readers a convenient way to see your other scholarly accomplishments.
UBC does not currently have a campus-wide policy on ORCID use. Faculty and students are, however, strongly encouraged to establish and use ORCID for the reasons above. UBC Library also offers regular workshops on ORCID.
UBC is currently a member of the ORCID.ca consortium, which is working at a national level to coordinate ORCID adoption by higher education, granting agencies, the health sector, and others.
Leonora Crema is Scholarly Communications and Copyright Librarian at UBC Library and serves as UBC's campus liaison to ORCID.ca. Specific requests for support from ORCID.ca should be coordinated through the Scholarly Communications & Copyright Office.
