For more details and screenshots, see these presentation slides (slides 40-69, link goes directly to slide 40). There are four basic steps to populating your ORCID works: connect to your Scopus Author Profile, choose one or more automatic import options, import a BibTeX file, and merge or delete duplicates.
Tip: If you have many publications and sources for importing (e.g., Scopus, Google Scholar), you can import from multiple locations first and then merge or delete duplicates (Step 4).
Simply copy/paste the identifier into the field, like this:
All the metadata will automatically import after you select "Retrieve work details."
Import works from a BibTeX file
Download a BibTeX file of your works from your Google Scholar Profile or a preferred subject database
Be aware: Google Scholar (GS) usually has poor data quality and/or missing fields; Scopus Author Profile, Search & Link, and/or Add an ArXiv ID, DOI, or PubMed ID should be used first before importing a BibTeX file from GS unless it's the best or only available option to you (e.g., you have hundreds of publications, and it will take too long to add each individual DOI).
Tip: If you have many publications, you can import from multiple locations before merging or deleting duplicates (Step 4).
Not recommended unless absolutely necessary due to data errors
For example, if you need to add a nontraditional research output not found in any database or bibliographic data source
Usually causes the most errors (e.g., typos) and missing fields
Bonus tip: deposit your manuscripts in an Open Access (OA) repository, add the official published version via one of the auto-import options listed in step 2, and then edit the record and add the link to the OA manuscript, like this:
This is how it will display on the record item, with both the publisher's DOI and the OA manuscript's identifier:
Step 4: Delete or merge duplicates (if necessary)
If you import scholarly works from multiple sources (e.g., Scopus, Google Scholar, DOIs), you may have duplicates.
Rather than figuring out where the duplicates are and being selective about importing them, it is likely easier to import from all the sources and then delete or merge the duplicates.
To delete, simply select the record with the lower quality metadata and then select Delete.
To merge, select both records, and then select Combine.
