Authors who have a confirmed ORCID iD will be shown on the researcher profile 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 TORE. As an author on TORE 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 TORE. If an ORCID iD is already entered in the profile, you can “claim” it by logging in to ORCID. Please make sure, your TORE 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 TORE 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.
After that you can configure “ORCID Push”. This ensures that all your publications will be automatically transferred to your ORCID profile.
Assigning authors unambiguously
When publishing on TORE, 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 record?
The easiest way: Configure “ORCID Push” in your researcher profile.
And good to know: 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 record 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 record.
- Give permission for auto-update.
Afterwards, new publications with your ORCID iD are automatically pushed to your record. This is not only true for TORE! Datacite appears as the source of this information.
