ORCID@HKUL: Link ORCID to HKU profiles

Linking your ORCID record to HKU Scholars Hub

HKU Scholars Hub

The ORCID / HKU ResearcherPage Synchronization facilitates HKU researchers to manage their ORCID records in an easier way. By using the ORCID API, researchers with ResearcherPages in the HKU Scholars Hub can claim ORCID iD and populate their ORCID records with data from the ResearcherPage. Please refer to the step-by-step guide on how to connect your ORCID records to your Scholars Hub ResearcherPage.

Linking your ORCID record to HKU DataHub


Apart from the Scholars Hub, synchronization between ORCID iD account and HKU researchers’ profile on DataHub is also available. DataHub is the institutional data repository of the University of Hong Kong and it is a platform for researchers to cite, store, preserve, and share research data.

5. Double check if the ORCID iD and profile is correct. If so, click on “Authorize access”.
