Supported Work Identifiers

ORCID allows reference IDs to be added to works, or to works for which a peer review activity was perform, to help uniquely identify them within the ORCID Registry.

Current versions of the ORCID schema only support identifiers directly related to the item; identifiers for parent and child items should not be included at this time. The ORCID registry checks for duplicates by identifier and "self" relationship; two items from the same client integration with the same identifier and "self" relationship cannot be added to a single ORCID record.

This list is manually updated and may be out of date. A complete list of used identifiers on the ORCID Registry can be found by querying the identifiers API
