ORCID @ NTU: Authorize NTU

Open Researcher and Contributor ID

About authorizing NTU

NTU is requesting NTU faculty members to authorize NTU to collect and use their ORCID iD and record data for NTU research systems by 30 Apr 2020 31 May 2020.

The upcoming new NTU research information system (Project RISE) that will replace RIMS (current research system) will be pulling information from the 'Works' section of NTU faculty members' ORCID records for publications and scholarly works. 'Works' Information will be used for NTU academic profile page, grant preparation and/or project reporting purposes.

Faculty members will need to update the 'Works' section of their ORCID record by 31 May 2020 31 Jul 2020.

Non-faculty members do not need to authorize.

Visiting Professors and Adjunct Appointment holders will not be required to authorize NTU for ORCID record access. See FAQ 'Is it compulsory for me to have an ORCID iD'?

Please note that you must set the visibility setting of your ORCID profile name to "everyone" before authorizing. If the visibility of the the ORCID profile name is set to to “private” or “trusted parties”, system will not be able to find the name. Hence, it will affect the authorization.  

To check or edit this information, log in to your ORCID record, click the pencil icon beside your name on the upper left side of the record and see that the "everyone" icon is selected.
