ORCID: Registration and Delegates

ORCID is a tool for authors to disambiguate their works from other researchers

How to Obtain an ORCID iD?

Two Easy Steps for Obtaining an ORCID iD:

1. Go to the Register page.

2. Automatically add publications to the ORCID profile from Scopus or Web of Science.

Institutional Log-in Now Available

A Washington University institutional sign-in to ORCID using your WUSTL Key is now available. This new functionality will make it easier for authors to sign-in to ORCID.

To sign-in to your ORCID account using your institutional account, select the Institutional Account tab from your ORCID profile page. Enter "wash" and select Washington University in St. Louis from the dropdown list and click Continue. This will redirect to the WUSTL Key page to sign-in to ORCID using your institutional account.

Sign in using your institutional account

Authors can unlink their ORCID accounts from Washington University using the Account Settings feature. Scroll to the Alternate Sign-in Accounts section and select the trash can icon next to the account to unlink it.

Adding a Delegate

ORCID has a delegate feature available to help with managing ORCID accounts. "Trusted Individuals" can be added as delegates to an ORCID account to allow for editing and updating of an ORCID account and profile. Note that Trusted Individuals must register for an ORCID account.
