ORCID sign-in is a core component of most ORCID workflows.
Enabling users to register or sign into your system using their ORCID credentials can save them time and effort; they don’t have to keep track of multiple usernames and passwords, and you immediately obtain an authenticated ORCID iD. At the same time as asking users to sign in, you can request permission to read or update their ORCID record.
ORCID sign-in is similar to social sign-in, for example sign-in using Google or Facebook, as offered on ORCID and other websites, and is often refered to as “single sign on” or “SSO”. You place a ‘sign in with ORCID’ button on your page, users click it, users authenticate themselves, and they are then returned to you with information about their ORCID account, including their name and authenticated ORCID iD.
Individuals sign into their ORCID accounts using their registered email address and password or with linked alternate sign-in credentials – this means that users can sign into ORCID with their federated institutional accounts and/or social accounts. Individuals without an existing ORCID iD can create one as part of the sign in process.
