ORCID @ W&M: ORCID for Faculty

ORCID for Faculty

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.

ORCID also provides distinct benefits for faculty when it comes to updating Faculty Annual Achievement Reports or reporting and establishing an online presence.
  • Import/export your citations between ORCID and other systems such as Google Scholar or 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.)

Import and Export Citations using BibTeX

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:

  1. In the works section of your record go to Add works, then select Import BibTeX.

  2. Click Choose File to open the file menu, then select the BibTeX (.bib) file you want to import.

  3. The publications from the file will appear in a list. Select the save icon (disk) next to a work to add the work individually, the delete icon (trash bin) to delete the work individually, or Save all to add all of the publications at once.

  4. The publications will appear listed under works in your record.

For more information about importing and exporting BibTex files into ORCID, visit their Support site.

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.
