Creating an ORCID iD via Symplectic means your iD is automatically linked to your Symplectic profile. This allows Symplectic to read and claim publications found in your ORCID profile.

1. Log in to Symplectic Elements with your College username and password. Scroll down the first page and click on ORCID Configure to create your new ORCID iD and link it to Symplectic.

2. If your email address is already in use try signing in, or reset your password.

3. Go to ORCID to sign in and add more information to your ORCID profile.

Enter as much information as you like, but we do recommend adding your institutional affiliation. You can add your education and employment history, as well as works from CrossRef, Scopus and others by using the Search and link function on your profile homepage. You can also import a BibTeX file to populate your profile with your publications.

4. Start using your ORCID iD! Many organisations now ask for it when you apply for a grant or submit a paper for publication.
