The most important thing to do with an ORCID iD is use it! Add your ORCID iD to email signatures, online profiles, manuscript submissions, peer reviews, grant applications, and more. If a journal or conference you are submitting to does not have a way to include an ORCID iD with your information, consider contacting the editors or organizers and requesting that they make it an option. Check out the Using ORCID page for more info on how to update and use your ORCID account.
You can use your ORCID to import information into your UNLV Folio record.
Under Vitas & Biosketches, click ORCID Registry or the bubble labeled Create or Connect your ORCID ID. This will take you to the ORCID logon page where you can sign in to your existing ORCID account and link it to UNLV Folio.
You will now have the option to Import information from your ORCID record to UNLV Folio. You can import scholarly works, funding, education and employment information from ORCID.
You should also make sure to add your ORCID in the Profile section of UNLV Folio. Select Profile from the left-hand menu.
Scroll down to the Author/Researcher Identification data field and click Add. Then enter your ORCID and any other identifiers you wish to include in the appropriate fields.
At this time the Libraries Institutional Repository, Digital Scholarship@UNLV has no integration with ORCID. The UNLV Libraries has asked the vendor to incorporate ORCID into the Digital Scholarship@UNLV platform but as yet the vendor is not providing this functionality. User publications in Digital Scholarship@UNLV overlap with multiple databases and so the Libraries recommends using these databases to pull in content to your ORCiD profile. Cross-Ref, Scopus, and Google Scholar are sources that will most likely overlap with Digital Scholarship@UNLV and the information above on this tab provides guidance on how to use these sources to populate an ORCiD account.
