Collecting validated ORCID iDs for individuals is important. Individuals sign into their ORCID accounts using their registered email address and password or they can create a new account and then authorize your system to obtain their ORCID iD.
Collecting authenticated iDs ensures you get the correct ORCID iD for the researcher and that the information on that record reflects their research activities.
Collecting IDs can be completed by requesting your researchers ORCID iD as part of your integration workflow or using ORCID as a single sign-on (SSO) method.
Please see our API Tutorial on how to collect authenticated ORCID iD’s for your researchers.
