Q. What do I do if I have multiple ORCID iDs?


You may write in to the ORCID Support Team to request them to mark one ORCID iD as a primary one, and the other iD as deprecated. Because ORCID identifiers are designed to be persistent, obsolete iDs will be deprecated, not deleted. The record associated with a deprecated iDs contains only a pointer to the primary record. Accessing a deprecated ORCID record redirects the requestor to the primary record, both in the user interface and the API. An example of a deprecated record is at https://orcid.org/0000-0001-6151-2200.
