How do I activate ORCID auto-update?

With your permission, DataCite will automatically update your ORCID publication record, provided your ORCID iD is included in the metadata of an item registered with a DataCite DOI.

First, go to the DataCite Profile Service and enable the ORCID auto-update. Please see a detailed description on our DataCite Profile pages.


After you have enabled the ORCID auto-update in the Profile Service, you will be prompted in your ORCID profile to allow DataCite to automatically add works to your ORCID record. Your approval here will finalize your registration for auto-update. You can revoke your permission for this auto-update at any time in the settings of your ORCID profile.
