This guide will help you update your personal profile page in the VU Research Portal

Create or connect your ORCiD


ORCiD  stands for Open Researcher and Contributer iD: A persistent digital identifier for anyone working in academia.

ORCiD is a unique personal number that allows researchers to easily and automatically connect their research information across a wide range of online databases. You can think of ORCiD as the academic equivalent of your passport: It ensures other research systems and services know who you are and what you have done.

Visit our ORCiD LibGuide to find out how you can create an ORCiD from Pure or link an existing ORCiD.

After you have done this, all your publications in Pure will automatically be exported to your ORCiD profile on a daily basis.

Do also check out the the section Connecting with Scopus which shows you how you can relate ORCiD to your Scopus Author profile.
