Authors who have a confirmed ORCID iD will be shown on the researcher profile page with the green iD icon. If the green iD icon is missing, the assignment of the iD has not been authentificated, so it may be wrong. The iD icon is also displayed together with the name in other contexts, for example on the overview pages of a publication or in search results.
Researcher profile and ORCID
The ORCID iD is stored in the researcher profile of tub.dok. As an author on tub.dok you can create your own profile or have an existing one assigned to you (“Claim”). This is only possible, if you are logged in on tub.dok. If an ORCID iD is already entered in the profile, you can “claim” it by logging in to ORCID. Please make sure, your tub.dok account has the same email address than your account at ORCID. Your email address on ORCID also must be visible for trusted parties or publicly.
The profile can also be linked to your ORCID iD manually. To do that, please log in to tub.dok and create or claim a researcher profile. You will see an ORCID tab in your researcher profile, where you can connect your ORCID account. If you do not have an ORCID iD yet, you can create it from your profile.
Assigning authors unambiguously
When publishing on tub.dok, you can search authors from a selection list. This selection list also searches for the person’s name in ORCID, so that you can conveniently select the person if you know their ORCID iD. If the person’s name is not marked with an ORCID iD, but with a label that begins with rp, it is a researcher profile. You can also use this if you know that the person you are looking for is hidden behind this profile number.
How does my publication get into my ORCID profile?
Data from repositories are registered with DataCite for a DOI. If we know your ORCID iD, we will transfer it to DataCite and you can adopt your ORCID profile from there:
- Create a DataCite Profil with your ORCID iD.
- Do you already have publications in DataCite? Search for your name in DataCite and claim all of your publications to your ORCID profile.
- Give permission for auto-update.
Afterwards, new publications with your ORCID iD are automatically pushed to your profile. This is not only true for tub.dok! Datacite appears as the source of this information.
