CrossRef and DataCite

CrossRef and DataCite

By authorizing CrossRef and DataCite to link with your ORCID profile, you could enjoy automatic updates for your ORCID profile. ORCID has a collaboration with CrossRef on providing auto-updates for new publications, which means once you have published a new paper or article with a DOI minted, it would be automatically updated onto your ORCID profile. The below figure shows the auto-update process:

You may perform the authorization simply with 2 steps:

Step 1:

Login to your ORCID profile. Under “add works”, select “search & link”. Choose “CrossRef Metadata Search” and “DataCite” from the list.



Step 2:

Press on “Authorize access”.
