Authorizing CrossRef Metadata Search on your ORCID® record

Once you've registered for an ORCID iD, you should authorize CrossRef Metadata Search to link to your ORCID record.

To do so, first log in to view your ORCID record. Your ORCID record should be the screen you see upon logging in; you can visit it directly at https://orcid.org/my-orcid. Scroll to the bottom of your ORCID record to the "Works" section. You may not need to scroll down if you haven't added entries to other parts of your ORCID record!

Scroll to the bottom of your ORCID record to the "Works" section.

Hover over the "Add works" dropdown menu to the right and select "Search & link:"

Hover over the "Add works" dropdown menu to the right and select "Search & link:"

You'll only need to authorize CrossRef Metadata Search once. CrossRef will monitor newly published works, and, if it finds a work it thinks is yours, will send a notification through ORCID to ask you if you'd like to link the work to your ORCID record.
