How to import publications from ETH E-Collection to your ORCID profile

In a previous blog post, we explored the potential of ORCID as a clear identifier for academic authors. In this post, we use a concrete example from ETH-Bibliothek to illustrate the relevance of the topic. It shows what the exchange of data between a university’s publication system and an ORCID profile using DOIs might look like.

ETH E-Collection is ETH Zurich’s institutional repository. This open access platform enables members of ETH Zurich to make academic papers accessible to a global readership. Every document published via ETH E-Collection receives a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which guarantees long-term access to the document and ensures its citability.

ETH-Bibliothek carries out the DOI registration for ETH E-Collection in collaboration with the DOI registration agency DataCite. In the course of the registration process, we forward the metadata for all publications that receive a DOI to the so-called DataCite Metadata Store. The majority of all DOIs registered globally via DataCite can be searched for and found in this data pool, which comprises around 3.5 million datasets.


If you would now like to import your dissertation, working paper or conference paper published via ETH E-Collection to your ORCID profile, you can do so via the DataCite Metadata Store: select the option “Link Works” in your ORCID profile and then click on the “DataCite search and link” wizard to authorise DataCite for the addition of publications.


You can then select your publication from the list of hits and add it to your ORCID profile.


The reference appears in your ORCID profile under the rubric “Works”.

The import process described is an example application that still has some unresolved issues. Currently, for instance, ORCID explicitly does not allow the retrospective editing of references (see a post on the ORCID Idea Forum). And the search for references in the DataCite Metadata Store only takes place based on the name of the ORCID user registered. In the case of common names, the search thus has to be narrowed down with existing title entries for publications.

Nonetheless, this linkup between ETH E-Collection and ORCID just goes to show how libraries and scientists can both improve the interplay between independent databases through the consistent use of persistent identifiers for publications (DOIs) and people (ORCID IDs). Ultimately, this greatly reduces the effort involved in maintaining the data for academic authors in future while boosting the visibility of their publications further.
