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.
1. Go to My NCBI. Then click on "See more 3rd party sign in options."
2. Search for ORCID in the Partner Accounts section and click the link.
3. 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.
4. Now you can sign into your existing My NCBI account OR create a new My NCBI account by choosing a username and entering your email address.
Click Manage SciENcv in the SciENcv section.
Click to edit your Mini Profile and add your ORCID iD. (Skip this step if you've already linked ORCID to My NCBI.)
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, biographical information will be automatically imported, and 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".
