Using a researcher profile like ResearcherID or Scopus can help you to cut down on amount of the manual data entry work required to populate your ORCID record as you can import existing records from your researcher profile to ORCID.

Here are some factors you might want to consider when deciding which researcher profile to use:

  • Firstly, choose a researcher profile that contains most of your publications. For example, if more of your publications are indexed in Scopus, you may wish to use Scopus.
  • Secondly, you may wish to select a researcher profile of a database that is the most recognized in your research community.
  • Thirdly, if you are an early career researcher, Google Scholar could be a good choice as the coverage of content could be more comprehensive.
