ORCID offers two APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow organizations to connect with individual users’ ORCID records. All the documentation that you need to build your own custom integration using our APIs can be found starting here. You can also find out what you need to do if you are using a third-party system that has already integrated with ORCID.
We provide frequent webinars in multiple timezones and languages to help you get started with your integration. Register now for an upcoming webinar.
Familiar with APIs? Then get started planning your integration! See our basic tutorials for step-by-step instructions on how to read, add, and update your users’ ORCID records. You can also access our Swagger UI for our public and member APIs.
Upgrading to newly launched 2.0 API? Find out more about what changes you’ll need to make if you have an active integration and are looking to upgrade to 2.0. Please note that we expect 1.2 will no longer be supported on the Public API from March 1, 2018; it is expected to be no longer supported on the Member API within 2018 also.
