ORCID @ UNLV: ORCID for Health Sciences

This guide is intended for faculty and student researchers. It contains information about the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) registry, including how to get, use, and connect your ORCID iD.

ORCID for Health Sciences

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?

  1. Connect your ORCID account to PubMed. ORCID's Search & Link wizards allow you to import data about publications from databases such as PubMed. Once you start using your ORCID iD with your publications PubMed will automatically update your ORCID account. Take a look at our Using Orcid page for more info.
  2. Set up your NCBI account to sign in with ORCID. Take a look below to find out more.
  3. Import ORCID citations into SciENcv. Take a look below to find out more.  

Check out this NCBI Minute video on PubMed Tools and ORCID ID's for Authors.
