ORCID iD can be connected by authors in their OJS accounts via an authorization requested by journal managers/editors or via an automated email sent upon issue publication (if enabled).
To register for an ORCID iD, visit the ORCID registration page.
If you have an account in an OJS journal, you can connect your ORCID iD by logging into the journal and navigating to View Profile > Public. If the journal has setup the plugin, you will see a button that says ‘Create or Connect your ORCID iD’ (OJS version 3.1.2 and above). For previous versions of OJS, you will see a text field where you can manually enter your iD. When you click the button, you will be asked to sign into ORCID to authenticate your account.
You can configure the ORCID plugin settings to send an email automatically to authors requesting ORCID authorization when an article is published. See Enable and Configure the ORCID Profile Plugin in OJS for more information.
