Use a wizard to import work information from another system by clicking "Search & link" and selecting from the available systems (such as Scopus, Crossref and ResearcherID).
Import a list of publications in bibtex format (such as that available as an export from your Google Scholar Citations profile). If using Endnote to produce a bibtex export you will find that the default Endnote formatting of bibtex is rejected by ORCID, you will need to use the modified bibtex export filter attached below.
Record your inventorship for patents in both the Lens patent database and in your ORCID record by logging into Lens with your ORCID login and then identifying your patents (see Lens's Recording Inventorship page for details)
Having an ORCID ID allows you to better manage your research profile and keep it up-to-date. In addition, publishers, funders and other organizations are increasingly using ORCID in their manuscript submission and grant application procedures. Look at the list of current integrations to see who is already using ORCID and how they are using it.
1. Add enough information to your ORCID record to distinguish you.
2. Use the available wizards to import your existing works (through Scopus or ResearcherID for example) or awarded grants.
3. Check that the privacy settings are set the way you would like. For each part of your ORCID profile you have the option of making the information public, keeping it private, or allowing limited access (organizations that you authorize as Trusted Parties can see this information). See ORCID Privacy Settings for more details.
If you would like someone to be able to help you update and manage your ORCID record you can add them as a trusted individual in the Account Settings section of your ORCID record.

External systems can be set up to search and retrieve information from the ORCID system using their public API. In addition, member organizations such as KAUST can set up systems to add information to the ORCID records of researchers who grant the relevant permissions via the member API.
To export the publication list from your ORCID record as bibtex, log in and then select the "Export works" option (for screenshots and a detailed explanation see: https://support.orcid.org/hc/en-us/articles/360006971453-Exporting-works-into-a-BibTeX-file ).
