ORCID Claiming

ORCID Claiming in DataCite Commons allows a researcher to manually claim a DOI for their work and link it to their ORCID profile.


DataCite Profiles

You need a DataCite Profiles account to use this service. In order for ORCID claiming to work the token must be enabled. Follow the instructions in the profiles documentation.

To claim a DOI in DataCite Commons first log in by clicking the button to the top right of the page.

  1. Search for a DOI using the search box. Click to open the full record of the DOI and scroll down to the ORCID claim section. Click on the "Claim DOI" button.
  1. The "Claim waiting" message appears, this take might a few seconds to complete. If the error: "No user and/or ORCID token" appears, check the ORCID token is enabled in DataCite Profiles.

Once completed the DOI will appear in the associated ORCID profile. The button now appears in orange with "Remove Claim" which will remove the DOI from the ORCID profile if claimed in error.


Researcher Profiles

Claims go to ORCID. They do not appear in the DataCite Researcher Profile. Only DOIs where the ORCID is included in the DOI metadata are linked to the DataCite Researcher Profile. In future releases all your claims will appear in in the researcher profile. Keep an eye on updates.
