Managing your Academic Identity

Authorizing Others to Manage Your ORCID Account

You can grant permission to one or more “trusted individuals” to update your ORCID record, acting as a delegate or proxy for managing your account. A trusted individual does not need to be another researcher, but he or she must have an ORCID iD.

Trusted individuals have access to your ORCID record, and will be able to edit any information on it, and make connections with external systems. For security reasons, that person (or people) may not edit anything that requires you to enter your ORCID password, including: adding email addresses, resetting your password, and deleting your account (which requires access to your email).

To grant access to a trusted individual, go to Account settings, then Trusted individuals. In the search box, enter the ORCID iD, email address, or name of the person you want to make a trusted individual, then click search.
