Researcher ORCIDs

Dimensions generates profiles for researchers algorithmically from a variety of sources, including publications and public ORCID data. Authenticated users of Dimensions can link their Dimensions and ORCID accounts and then use the "Add to ORCID" links on Dimensions records to upload citations to their ORCID profile:

  1. Log in to Dimensions if not already
  2. Select ORCID information in the dropdown under your name
  3. Authenticate and link (or revoke the link) to your ORCID account
