Next to information about your publications you can add other types of information to your ORCID record. This includes:
In the Also known as field you can add additional names you may be known with or names you've published with. This can be for example your name with your initials, your name in other character sets, former names, etc. These names are shown in the search results in the ORCID registry - this can help other people to choose the right ORCID iD.
In the Biography section you can add a description of your research interests and projects and your career. It's a plain-text field, it's not possible to add links to the text.
In the Keywords section you can add words or phrases which describe your research activities. Keywords can help someone identify you, and keyword search is an option for searching the ORCID Registry.
Employment is a formal employment relationship with an organization, e.g. staff, intern, researcher, contractor. Employment can be paid or unpaid.
In the Employment section you can add your current and past employment relations. For ORCID employment is 'a formal employment relationship between a person and an organization'.
Choosing Erasmus University Rotterdam adds several institutional identifiers of the EUR to your ORCID record, including the ROR ID (Research Organization Registry) and the GRID ID (Global Research Identifier Database).
When you connect your ORCID iD and record to Pure, employment information will be added to your ORCID record by the 'EUR Research Portal'. This only contains the name of the university - your function, school, start date are not added. However, for other people looking at your ORCID record, this is still valuable information: it's a so-called 'trust marker', the 'EUR Research Portal' will appear as the source of the information, enabling you and others to be confident that this information is authorative and trustworthy.
Education is participation in an academic higher education program to receive an undergraduate, graduate, or other degree. This can be in progress or unfinished.
Qualification is participation in a professional or vocational accreditation, certification, or training program. This can be in progress or unfinished.
You can add information about funding grants you have received. You can add them via the DimensionsWizard or manually.
Via the DimensionsWizard
If you can't find your grant, it's possible the funder is not covered by Dimensions. A list of the sources can be viewed when you're signed in in your ORCID record, via https://orcid.dimensions.ai/datasources
Peer review contributions can only be added to your ORCID record by a trusted organization. This can be the organizer of the peer review, such as a publisher of funder, or by a third party review recognition service, such as Publons (on August 18, 2022 Publons was integrated into Web of Science Researcher Profiles). This means you have to provide your ORCID iD to the organizer of the peer review and/or link your Web of Science Researcher profile to your ORCID record. And you have to give the review organizer and/or Web of Science permission to update the review section of your ORCID record.
In your ORCID record, the name of the journal, the review date and your role will be visible. For blind peer reviews, there is no information about the reviewed publication.
Web of Science
Organizer of the peer review
The organizer of the peer review will ask your permission to update your ORCID record with information about your review contribution. When asked, supply your ORCID iD.
You can use the Websites & social links section in your ORCID record to add links to personal pages, for example your Google Scholar Profile, LinkedIn profile, Europe PubMed Central profile, your researcher profile in the EUR Research Portal, ResearchGate etc.
When you connect your ORCID iD and record to Pure, a link to your profile on the EUR Research Portal is added, as 'Erasmus University Rotterdam profile page'.
The ISNI - International Standard Name Identifier - is an identifier used by libraries, databases, and publishers. The goal is to uniquely identify persons and organizations involved in creative activities, including researchers. It's possible to link your ORCID iD to your ISNI:
