Get an ORCID iD


Creating an ORCID iD is simple and takes little time. You can create your ORCID iD via Pure, the research information system of the UG. This way, your ORCID iD is immediately connected to Pure and your ORCID page is automatically filled with your research output from Pure.

Go through these steps or watch this short instruction video.

Login to Pure. Click on "Edit profile" on your Personal overview page.
Click on the link "Create or Connect your ORCID iD".

You will now be directed to the ORCID site where you can generate your ORCID iD. Click on "Proceed".

Fill in all required fields and press "Register".

In order to make optimal use of your ORCID iD, we recommend that you make your profile public (setting: Everyone). More information on visibility settings.

Pure requests permission to access your ORCID iD. We ask you to grant this permission.
Press "Save" at the bottom of the Pure screen. You now have an ORCID iD and it is registered in Pure.
On your personal profile page there is now an ORCID icon in your profile. This icon is a link to your ORCID page.

You can also use your ORCID iD to login to and view your page there. It may take some time for your data from Pure to be visible on your ORCID page. This is because they are synchronized every 24 hours. You can manually synchronize the data by clicking on the "Export" button behind your ORCID iD in Pure. Please note that you also have to add your affiliation details to your ORCID page manually.

In order to benefit the most from your ORCID iD, we ask you to always include your ORCID iD when you submit publications or apply for funding. More information on how you can use your ORCID iD.

By enabling Automated Search in Pure, you also have the possibility to import research output from your ORCID page to your Pure profile.
