Now available! Link your ORCID iD to your Overleaf account.

By Ryan Looney

ORCID® provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Securely establish your identity by linking your ORCID iD to your Overleaf account. Submissions to participating publishers will automatically include your ORCID iD for improved workflow and visibility.

To link your ORCID record with your Overleaf account, click your name at the top of the screen, and select Settings. Scroll or click down to Linked Accounts. Click the Link button next to ORCID.

Link your Overleaf account to your ORCID iD

If you’re already logged in to ORCID, your account is now linked. If you’re not logged in to ORCID, you’ll be directed to the ORCID website to log in, or register. Enter your ORCID login credentials, and click Authorize.

Once your account is linked, your ORCID iD will be included in submissions to participating publishers.
