You can add scholarly efforts, memberships, and more to your ORCID record through a variety of ways. Adding this information to your record creates a more complete picture of the work in scholarship, service, memberships, held positions, and more. On this page, we've outlined a few of the possibilities for adding information to your record. Utilize any combination of these sources to add to your account.

ORCID's Search & Link wizards allow you to import data about publications from databases such as Crossref, Datacite and Scopus (ORCID has a full list of supported databases on their site). Watch the video below to learn how!
ORCID has also developed more information on allowing databases, such as those that create DOIs, to automatically update your ORCID account when a scholarly work is published.
Import/export your citations between ORCID and other systems such as Google Scholar or Academia.edu using BibTeX files. Check out ORCID's tutorial. (If your citations cannot be exported in BibTeX, don't worry! There are other ways to update your account. See the "Using ORCID" page for more information.)
BibTeX is a platform-independent, plain-text format used for bibliographic citations. BibTeX files can be created and edited using many popular reference management tools, such as Google Scholar Citations, EndNote, Papers, etc.
To import a list of works saved in a BibTeX file into your ORCID record:

You can manually add works to your ORCID profile. You may want to do this for presentations or other content that is not listed in databases such as Crossref.
To add a work click the +Add button then click the Add manually button.
You are required to include a Work Category, a Work Type, and a Title. We recommend completing the Work identifiers field and as many other fields as possible when manually adding works.
For more information, take a look at ORCID's help page for manually adding works, or check out the list of supported Work Types if you want guidance in choosing which one to use.
