EUR ORCID LibGuide: Pure & ORCID

Connecting your ORCID iD and record to Pure: why and what?

You can connect your ORCID iD and record to your Pure profile, and give the EUR permission to send information from the Pure repository to your ORCID record.

This will save time: publications added from Pure to the EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal will be added to your ORCID record as well. This is especially useful for publications that can't be automatically added to your ORCID record in other ways (via the auto-update of Crossref, via a Search and Link Wizard, etc.) - for example publications in local or professional journals, reports, newspaper articles etc. 

Having information added to your ORCID record via an institution works as a 'trust marker': the 'EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal' will appear as the source of the information, enabling you and others to be confident that this information is authorative and trustworthy - because it's added by the university itself.

Information from the Pure repository is added to different sections in your ORCID record:

  • Employment - Erasmus University Rotterdam is added, plus the start date, function and department. 
    The school is not added. Also previous affiliations with the EUR are added.
    Please note: if you don't want this information to be visible, then you can change the visibility setting of the record. If you delete it, it will be added by Pure again the next day.
  • Websites & social links - a link to your profile on the EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal is added, as 'Erasmus University Rotterdam profile page'.
  • Other IDs - when available in Pure, your Scopus Author ID and/or Web of Science ResearcherID are added.
    Please note: this information is not deduplicated: when the identifier is already added to your ORCID record, it will be visible twice. You can solve this by changing the visibility setting to 'Trusted parties' or 'Only me' instead of 'Everyone'.
  • Works - these publications are sent to your ORCID record:
    • Publication state: Published or ePub ahead of print
    • Visibility: Public
    • Workflow status: Validated

If a work is already in your ORCID record, for example added by the auto-update of Crossref, ORCID will group the items when they share an identifier, like the DOI. You can select the preferred source. 

TIP: if you don't want a work to be visible, change the visibility setting to 'Only me' instead of 'Everyone'. When you delete a work from your ORCID record, it will be added again the next time data from the Pure repository is synced.

Connecting your ORCID iD and record to Pure: how?

To make the connection between the Pure repository and your ORCID iD and record:

  • Login to Pure with your EUR credentials
  • Click on Edit Profile on your personal overview page
  • Click Authenticate your ORCID ID (when your ORCID iD is already visible in Pure) or Create or Connect your ORCID iD (when your ORCID iD is not yet visible in Pure, or when you don't have an ORCID iD)
  • Mark the box in front of 'I hereby allow Pure to export content on my behalf'. 
    • Please note: at the EUR ORCID is not used as a import source for Pure, so it's not possible to send information from your ORCID record to Pure.
  • Click Proceed
  • Sign in with your ORCID credentials
  • Authorize EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal to access your ORCID record
  • Don't forget to click Save at the bottom of the screen in Pure
  • Behind your ORCID iD 'Authenticated' is added. 
  • If you click Edit Profile again, you will see an Export link behind your ORCID iD. If you click that link, information will be exported from Pure to your ORCID record immediately. If you don't click the link, information will be exported the next morning.
  • Once connected, the data is updated daily.

The 'EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal' is now one of your 'Trusted parties'. 

Re-authentication required

When you have made the connection between your ORCID iD and Pure before July 2023, it's possible you see 'Re-authentication required' behind your ORCID iD in Pure. This means that there is a problem with the token that is stored in Pure to maintain the authentication. To make sure your ORCID record is kept up to date by Pure, you need to re-authenticate: click the button Re-authenticate to start the process.

How to make data imported from Pure invisible

If you don't want information added by Pure to be visible on your ORCID record, it's better to change the visibility settings instead of deleting the information – because when deleted, it will be added again when the data from Pure is synchronized.

To change the visibility settings of an item:

  • Find the item on your ORCID record
  • Select the visibility setting 'Only me'
  • Click Save changes

How to revoke the permission

You can remove the permission given to the EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal to update your ORCID record:

  • Login to your ORCID record
  • Click your name at the top of the page and open Trusted parties
  • Find EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal in the list of Trusted organizations and click Revoke access behind it
  • Click Revoke access permissions

Please note: the EUR & Erasmus MC Research Information Portal will still be able to delete items added via that route, but they will no longer be able to edit or add information.
