ORCID & Pure

Ensure your ORCID record is up to date by:

  • LINKING your Pure record with ORCID.
  • AUTHORISING Pure to export your outputs to ORCID.
  • KEEPING your Pure research management system record up to date.

Once Pure is linked to your ORCID record, it will automatically export any new research outputs you add to Pure to your ORCID record daily.

You can find more information on how to keep your Pure record up to date, add or import your publications, and link Pure with ORCID at the University's Wiki. 

ORCID & Scopus

You can link your Scopus author profile to your ORCID using the Scopus2ORCID wizard.

Follow the steps in the attached document to link your ORCID to your Scopus author profile. 

During this process you can also request changes to the way Scopus displays your name or affiliation. You can also report publications incorrectly linked to your profile, or that need to be added to your profile, as long as these publications are already indexed in Scopus.

These instructions are for linking an existing ORCID to your Scopus author profile. If you do not have an ORCID please follow the instructions linked to below to create an ORCID from your Pure profile.


Researchers can now auto-populate their research output data into their ARC RMS person profiles and application forms

ORCID integration into the Research Management System (RMS) reduces the burden of repeated manual entry of publication data (‘works’) in the grant application process.

What does this mean for researchers?

Your RMS ‘Person Profile’ will be enhanced to include your research output data. Your research output data will be harvested from ORCID by authenticating your ORCID ID in RMS and adding the ARC as a trusted party.

You can choose to enter the data manually, or alternatively, use the ‘bulk upload’ facility. Once the data is entered into your RMS person profile, it can be used to auto-populate proposals without having to manually create and update your documents each time you submit a project proposal.

Research Office staff can also insert or update ORCID data into a researcher’s profile after the ORCID ID is authenticated, and the ARC is added as trusted party. This means that Research Office staff will also be able to enter research output data at any time for their researchers.

All RMS users can now auto-populate their research output data in ARC RMS and add their research output data from their ORCID profile into their Discovery Projects (DP) scheme 2020 application forms.
