Creating ORCID and Affiliating Your Account with Purdue

  1. Create or sign-in to your ORCID profile with your email.
  2. First, scroll to “employment” and click the pencil icon. Identify your current organization as “Purdue University West-Lafeyette” not “Purdue University System” and set your account visibility to “Everyone”.
  3. For new accounts: verify your email with the link sent to you by ORCID.
  4. For older accounts: If you previously associated with Purdue under a different name than “Purdue university West-Lafayette” such as “Purdue University” click the “X” next to the employment record and delete. Then, re-add Purdue under “Purdue University West-Lafayette” by clicking the pencil icon and adding it in with the wizard.

Creating or Connecting Scopus Profile with ORCID

  1. If your “Scopus Author ID” is not connected under “Other IDs” then scroll to “Works” and select add. Click on “search & link” and select “Scopus – Elsevier” from the pop-up menu. Authorize access and complete the set-up wizard.
  2. If you have multiple Scopus author profiles, you can request to merge them via an author search and clicking on “merge author request” then complete the Author Feedback Wizard (your ticket may take up to seven days to complete).
  3. And once all that is done, you’re connected! Need more help? Check out our more detailed instructions here.
