ORCID: Adding publications to ORCID

How to link ORCID with Scopus ID

Linking your Scopus ID with ORCID will allow you to automatically transfer publication details from Scopus into your ORCID profile. There are two ways you can do this.

Option 1: Linking ORCID from Scopus Author ID

1. Go to Scopus Author search

2. Search by your name (and affiliation field if you get too many results)

3. Click on your name in the results list to open your profile page. (Please note: you won’t find an Author ID if you don’t have works already indexed by Scopus)

4. If you do have an Author ID, select ‘Connect to ORCID’ (located in 'Profile Actions')

5. Follow the steps to connect your Scopus author profile with your ORCID record.

Please not if you have more than one Scopus ID choose the main one you want to use and merge them together. Watch the video above for instruction on how to do this.

Option 2: Linking Scopus Author ID from ORCID

1. Login to ORCID

2. In the Works section, select 'Add works’ and then ‘Search & link’

3. Select Scopus Elsevier from the list and authorise

4. Follow the steps to and connect your Scopus profile and works with ORCID

ORCID and Web of Science Integration (via Publons)

To export your publications to ORCID please follow these steps:

1. On the ‘Permissions Settings’ page, click "Link your ORCID" and follow the steps to link your ORCID account to Publons.

2. Once ORCID profile is linked, navigate back to permissions settings page and select ‘Grant Publons permission to update your ORCID works’ and confirm authorization request.

Only publications meeting the following criteria can be exported from Publons to ORCiD:

  • Was not originally imported from ORCiD
  • Has a publication detail page on Publons.  You can check this by testing whether a publication's title is a clickable link from your private dashboard publication history table.
  • Has a DOI or a Web of Science accession number associated.  The former can be ascertained from the publication's detail page on Publons, the latter can be determined by testing whether the publication has a citation count associated (including zero).
