Adding publications via linked databases

In the video below, you will learn a few different ways to automatically population your ORCID iD publication list with the Search and Link Wizard.

Some of the places you can link from include:

  • Crossref: Import your publications from CrossRef’s authoritative, publisher-supplied metadata on over 70 million scholarly journal and conference proceeding articles and books and book chapters.
  • Web of Science: Create profile at ORCID, then use the wizard at ResearcherID (under "Researcher Profile > Exchange Data With ORCID").
  • Scopus: Create a profile at ORCID, then go use this link to reconcile your various Scopus publications
  • Google Scholar: Export as BibTEX, import in ORCID profile. University of Iowa offers a guide on how to export works from Google Scholar.  For instructions regarding importing, visit the ORCID knowledgebase.
  • EndNote: Export as txt-file with BibteX style.
  • Mendeley: Go to your personal Mendeley profile page and click "Create or Connect your ORCID iD".
