You can add a brief biography to your ORCID profile. Use this space to introduce yourself and describe your research and career interests.
ORCID makes adding your education history to your profile very easy- once you start typing in your institution, ORCID will find it in their database and will fill in the location information. Then you provide departmental information, degree earned, and date range.
Adding employment is very similar to adding your educational background. Just search for your institution and fill in your title and date range.
You can add funding/awards/grants you've received to your ORCID profile. This can be done by manually typing in the funding information, or by using ORCID's UberWizard (the Search & link option).
You can add works to your profile in one of three ways:
1. Use the Search & Link Wizard
Search for your works in the many ORCID partners including Scopus, MLA, PubMed Central, DataCite, CrossRef, and more.
2. Import a BibTex File
Citation managers can create .bib files for importing citations. These can be created using EndNote, RefWorks, Google Scholar, Papers, and more.
3. Add Manually
You can manually type in the required fields to add individual works that aren't available for import in the other two options.
ORCID lets you decide how much of your information is shared with others. For every aspect of your profile (biography, education, employment, funding, works), you can choose one of three privacy levels:
"Information marked as everyone can be viewed by anyone who comes to the ORCID website or consumed by anyone using the ORCID public API. This information is also included in the public data file posted annually by ORCID."
2. Trusted Parties
"Limited-access information that can be seen by any trusted parties whom you have granted access to your ORCID record. These connections require explicit action on your part."
3. Only Me
"Private information can only be seen by you and trusted individuals you have granted access to help administer your ORCID record on your behalf. It is also used by ORCID algorithms to help distinguish your identity from another person who may have a similar name, be in a similar field, or may be confused with you for other reasons. This information is not shared with others."
