Claiming papers in ORCID

If you care about having your ORCID claims searchable in the ADS.

  1. Make sure you’re signed in to ADS. If you are not signed in already, sign in here or create an account.

  2. Authenticate with ORCID. Click on the ORCID button in the top navigation bar and follow the instructions.

  3. Enter a bit of extra information in your ADS User Profile. If you haven’t done this already, go to the ORCID settings page in your ADS account. Enter in 1) your current affiliation, and 2) any name variations under which you might have published. Submitting the form will grant ADS permission to track your claims, allowing us to put your data in our system and marking it as trusted so that others can find it.

  4. Claim papers. Search for your name variations in the search interface. Make sure ORCID mode is “on” (click on the ORCID button in the navigation bar to toggle the setting). Claim papers individually by clicking the Claim in ORCID button under a relevant search result. You can also claim multiple papers at once by selecting the check boxes next to the relevant search results and clicking the Claim button in the ORCID Bulk Actions box in the right column.

  5. Check your claims in ADS! Your ORCID claims take up to 24 hours to be indexed in the ADS. After that, you should be able to search for your ORCID papers in the ADS by using the search term: orcid:[orcid id].

Alternate Method

If you just want to use ADS to send claims to your ORCID profile. (Most of your papers will likely still be eventually findable in the ADS, but they will be marked as less trusted than papers claimed using Method #1)

  1. Authenticate with ORCID. Click on the ORCID button in the top navigation bar and follow the instructions.

  2. Claim papers. Search for your name variations in the search interface. Make sure ORCID mode is “on” (click on the ORCID button in the navigation bar to toggle the setting). Claim papers individually by clicking the Claim in ORCID button under a relevant search result. You can also claim multiple papers at once by selecting the check boxes next to the relevant search results and clicking the Claim button in the ORCID Bulk Actions box in the right column.

  3. It’s not too late to change your mind! You can always sign into your ADS account (or create a new one) and submit the user profile information described above to facilitate indexing your claims in ADS. Without performing this final step, some of your claims may not be properly indexed in ADS due to our inability to match your name variations against the published records.
