EUR ORCID LibGuide: FAQ's

Frequenty asked questions

I have more than 1 ORCID iD! How can I solve this?

ORCID has several controls in place to discourage more than one ORCID iD for a researcher. When you register, they check for duplicates bases on name and only one ORCID iD per email address is allowed. 

However it is possible you have more than one ORCID iD. You can remove your duplicate ORCID iD:

  • Login to the ORCID record you want to keep
  • Click your name at the top of the page and choose Account Settings
  • Click Remove duplicate record
  • Enter the sign-in details for the record you want to deprecate
  • Click Remove record

Please note: all information and permissions from the duplicate record will be deleted, and the associated email address(es) will be added to the primary record.

How can I add my publication list from my Google Scholar Profile?

When you have a Google Scholar Profile, you can download that list and upload it in your ORCID record.

Please note: Google Scholar has no article identifiers like DOI or PubMed ID. To make full use of ORCID, the records should have a DOI or other identifier.

Download your publication list from your Google Scholar profile

  • Open your Google Scholar Profile and log in
  • Mark the titles you want to export
  • Click Export
  • Choose BibTeX 
  • Save the file
  • Change the format from .txt to .bib

Upload the file in your ORCID record

  • Open your ORCID record 
  • Click + Add works and select Import BibTeX
  • Click the button Choose file and browse to the .bib file from Google Scholar
  • Check the records added - you can save (disk icon) or ignore (bin icon) them.

Can I get help with getting my ORCID record up-to-date?

Yes! You can make an online appointment with the Erasmus Library ORCID Team. A team member will support you in adding publications to your ORCID record.

Another username & password?!

You can sign in to your ORCID record with your ORCID iD or email address and the password you created. It's also sign in with your EUR login credentials. 

  • Open the Sign in page of ORCID and click the button Access through your institution
  • Enter Erasmus in the Organization's name box
  • Select Erasmus University Rotterdam and click Continue
  • If you are not logged in yet, login with your ERNAID and password 
  • The screen 'Link your Erasmus University Rotterdam account to your ORCID record' should appear
  • Enter your ORCID iD or email address and your ORCID password
  • Click Sign in and link your Erasmus University Rotterdam account

In your Account Settings, you can see the Alternate sign in Accounts. There is also the option to unlink the accounts.

If you want to login to your ORCID record, you can now use the Access through your institution option or your ORCID credentials.

Please note: creating this link doesn't send data from ORCID to any EUR system or vice versa.

You can also use your Facebook or Google login to access your ORCID record.

Some publications are twice in my ORCID record

If works are added from multiple sources or added manually, they are automatically grouped together when they have a common identifier, like a DOI. In ORCID you will see 'Preferred source (of x)' at the bottom of the record. You can set the preferred source, by clicking 'Make preferred'. 

If the works are not grouped together, because they have different or no identifiers, you can group them together manually:

  • Mark the works you want to group
  • When two or more works are marked the button Combine at the top of the Works section becomes clickable.
  • The works will be displayed as one work.
