ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier) is an independent non-profit organisation that provides researchers with a persistent identifier – an ORCID iD, which distinguishes you from other researchers. ORCiD also provides a mechanism for linking your research outputs and activities to your iD.
ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions and other research-related services.
Linking your ORCID profile to Pure follows the same process whether you already have an ORCID or not. Follow the steps below to allow your publications in Pure to automatically feed through to your ORCiD profile.
Publication details from Pure will be exported to ORCID on a nightly basis. Your ORCID iD will be publicly visible on your profile page in the University of Bath research portal.
Currently we are only able to send content from Pure to ORCID. For information on importing data from ORCID into Pure, contact email@example.com.
For more information about Pure and ORCID see Research & Innovation Services' webpage.
As well as linking your ORCID to Pure, you can populate your ORCiD record in a number of other ways (ORCID help pages).
Your name, published name, biography, and email addresses need to be added manually, but all other fields can be populated by connecting your ORCID iD with other information systems.

Using the Search & Link Wizard is recommended for adding additional works.
Include your ORCID iD in research systems including Pure, manuscript submission systems, grant applications, Researchfish, repositories and many more and, with your permission, your information can be exchanged between these systems so you don’t have to enter it manually. This saves you time and ensures the use of quality data that you have approved and your organizations have certified.
Display your ORCID iD on your Pure profile, email signature, conference presentations, media stories, CV, and anywhere you have a public profile for your research (e.g. blog, website, social media).
