Build Profile using other sources

Databases Available within ORCID

Within your ORCID profile, you can search many large databases and import metadata for your works. 

Some of the most useful may be:

  • CrossRef (includes all publications that have a DOI, digital object identifier) 
  • Scopus 
  • MLA International Bibliography 
  • Researcher ID (if you have created one in Web of Science) 
  • DataCite
  • Europe PubMed Central (contains all of PMC in the US as well)

All of these can be accessed by clicking on Add Works> Search and Link.

Add Works menu

In these cases, you will be presented with a list of works and you can select the ones you want to import.

Importing a BibTeX File

Some databases and tools that allow you to use BibTeX files include:

  • ATLA (American Theological Library Association)
  • BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine)
  • EndNote
  • Zotero

Instructions on how to add works to your profile using BibTeX are available on the "Import works from Google Scholar" page of this guide. While those instructions are specific to Google Scholar, the steps are mostly the same for any database. For more information or help with a specific database, you can contact your Subject Librarian or John O'Connor, the eScholarship Repository Librarian.
