ORCID makes it easy to manage your record
The next time you log into ORCID, be sure to check your ORCID inbox by clicking on your name at the top right corner, then click on inbox. The inbox is ORCID’s messaging system that helps record holders manage how and when they receive notifications about:
- Account and record notifications, such as updates made to your record by trusted organizations, notifications about being made a trusted individual;
- Requests to grant permission to other scholarly services so they can keep it up to date.
- New features and tips notifications, sent around three to four times a year;
- Service messages related to or affecting your ORCID account, sent irregularly and which we are required to send.
Account and record notifications
You may opt-in to receive notifications in your inbox when a trusted organization has added or edited your record with your permission. Other account notifications include administrative changes, such as being made a trusted individual. A third type of account notification comes when a trusted organization wants your permission to add or update your ORCID record.
Requests to grant permission to other scholarly services so they can keep it up to date.
Crossref can automatically keep your record up to date with the articles you publish. You only have to grant permission once, by clicking a button, and Crossref will automatically add work items for all the Crossref DOIs that contain your ORCID iD.
New features and tips notifications
You may opt-in to receive emails from ORCID about new features and tips for making the most of your ORCID record. These messages are sent to your primary email address once quarterly. You can change your notification settings at any time under your account settings.
