More and more journals and grants are requiring an ORCID iD. If you want to learn more or create one, check out the Getting Started with ORCID and Using ORCID pages. If you're interested in how ORCID can be used in the Health Sciences, read on!
How can you use your ORCID account?
Check out this NCBI Minute video on PubMed Tools and ORCID ID's for Authors.
First, sign into your NCBI account. Then click on your username in the upper right hand corner to access the NCBI Account Settings.
In the Linked accounts section of this page click the "Change" button.
Search for ORCID in the Partner Accounts section.
Click on the ORCID link in the search results, log into your ORCID account (if you are not already logged in), and click the Authorize button to give NCBI permission to Read your ORCID record.
Then on the front page of NCBI you can click the "See more 3rd party sign in options" link to sign in with ORCID.
Click Manage SciENcv in the SciENcv section.
Click to edit your Mini Profile and add your ORCID iD.
Click on the link in the SciENcv box to create a new CV.
Give your Biosketch a name, choose the format you need, then choose ORCID as the External source.
After you have created the BioSketch you can import citations from ORCID. For example, in the Personal Statement section click on "Select citations", choose the ORCID tab, select the citations you want added and then click "Save citations".
These aren't available yet, but they should be available in the near future!
