Step 1: Link your ORCID iD to your ETH person profile 

To be able to assign your ORCID iD to publications in the Research Collection, you need to first link your ORCID record to your ETH profile.

In order to do so, please log in to the Adresses and Personal Data application.

In your profile, click on "link ORCID iD"  and log into Agree to its import. The ORCID link will then be created automatically.

If you do not have an ORCID iD yet, you can register on for free in the same step ("link ORCID iD").

Your ORCID iD will be displayed in your personal profile as well as in your public profile on ETH Zurich’s People Search.


Your Research Collection user profile is updated over night. Therefore, once you have connected your ORCID iD to your ETH profile, you will need to wait for the next day in order to use the features described in steps 2 and 3 in the Research Collection.


Step 2: Assign your ORCID iD to publications in the Research Collection 

Sign in to the Research Collection with your nethz Login.

Click on "Assign ORCID iD" in the left hand navigation under the "Publish" heading.

The list displayed on this page shows publications that contain your name in the author, editor or another contributor field.

Use the checkboxes to select an item and then use either the “Assign ORCID iD” button to assign your ORCID iD to the selected item or use “Dismiss publication” which will ensure the publication doesn’t show up again in this list. 



Step 3: Record new publications with ORCID iD 

To enter new publications, proceed as described on the Publication process page.

When entering an author name, make sure to select a variant from the suggestion list that is connected with the person's ORCID iD.

If you are not sure if the suggested person / ORCID iD is the correct one, please open the "Lookup".

Here you can see more information that will help you identify the correct person.
