Trusted organizations are those to which you have granted permission to interact with your ORCID iD and record.
When you connect your ORCID iD to another organization’s system, for example while submitting a manuscript to a publisher or using the 'Search and Link' wizard. you will be asked to grant permission to that organization to interact with your ORCID account.
Grant permissions to trusted organisations to update your ORCID record and enable easy and error-free sharing and re-use of this information:
When you grant permission, that organization becomes a trusted organization and is listed in the Trusted organizations section of your account settings.
It is recommended that NTU members permit selected trusted organisations such as DataCite and Crossref to add/update their record.
You can revoke the permission anytime from the Trusted organizations section of your account settings page and click delete (the trash can icon) near the name of the organization whose access you want to revoke.
Trusted individuals are other ORCID iD holders to whom you have granted permission to update your ORCID record.
You can grant permission to one or more trusted individuals to update your ORCID record, acting as a delegate or proxy for managing your account.
To grant access to a trusted individual, sign in to ORCID, click the down arrow beside your name, go to Account settings, then Trusted individuals. In the search box, enter the ORCID iD, email address, or name of the person you want to make a trusted individual, then click search. Click on Add next to the name of the user you wish to make a trusted individual
If a user has added you to their ORCID record as a trusted individual, a notification will appear in your ORCID inbox.
Once you have been added as a trusted individual, you will see an additional option when you log in to your own ORCID record. Under your name you will see the heading Switch account.
Clicking on Switch account will list the records that you can manage.
There are four ways to add works to your ORCID record yourself:
1. Add works by direct import from other systems by searching and linking to your publications and other works to your ORCID record from other databases.
2. Add works using an identifier.
3. Import and export works via BibTeX.
4. Add works manually.
You can also set up auto updates by providing your iD and granting permissions to trusted organizations to add data to your record and do auto update
Search and Link wizards are the recommended way to populate your record. Wizards make adding works easy, ensure you are getting data about the work directly from the source so it is accurate, and allow the addition of contributor information, which is not possible via other methods.
To add works to your ORCID record using a Search & Link wizard, you must first grant access to the organization's integration. Select the platform you want to use to import your works from the dropdown list. You'll be prompted to grant access to your ORCID record then taken to the member's website to select the works to add to your ORCID record. Works added with a Search and Link Wizard will display the relevant organization as the source of the item and you as the source of the connection between that item and your record. This displays as “[researcher name] via [wizard name].”
You will need to login to your Publons account to grant Publons permission to link your ResearcherID to ORCID. To export your publications to ORCID please follow these steps:
To do so, you can use this link to add publication data from your Scopus Author Profile to your ORCID record.
