What does it mean to “Keep my publication list up to date with my ORCID record”? 
 

Once you have added ORCID to your account you will see the option to “Keep my publication list up to date with my ORCID record” in the ORCID permission settings page of your Publons private dashboard. 

 
Enabling this option will mean that changes you make to the publication list on your ORCID record will be reflected on Publons. An update to your Publons account will be triggered by:

  • A new eligible* publication being added on ORCiD 
  • A previously imported publication being removed from ORCiD 
  • A previously imported publication having any of the following fields changed on ORCID: 
    • Title 
    • DOI 
    • UT (Web of Science accession number) 
    • Pubmed ID 
    • arXiv ID
    • Journal name 
    • Date published 


If sync is enabled, these updates should be visible on Publons within ten minutes of occurring on your ORCID record. If they are not, please get in touch. 

 

*Eligible publications must: 

  • Be either "journal-article" or "conference-paper" 
  • Have a title 

 


 

How do I export my Publications to ORCiD? 

 
Once your ORCiD profile is linked, you can select ‘Grant Publons permission to update your ORCID works’ and confirm authorization request. Please then click on "Export Publications to ORCID now" 

 
Only publications meeting the following criteria can be exported from Publons to ORCiD: 

  • Were not originally imported from ORCiD 
  • Has a publication detail page on Publons.  You can check this by testing whether a publication's title is a clickable link from your private dashboard publication history table. 
  • Has a DOI or a Web of Science accession number associated.  The former can be ascertained from the publication's detail page on Publons, the latter can be determined by testing whether the publication has a citation count associated (including zero). 

 


How do I automatically export my verified review history to my ORCiD profile?  

 

In order to provide maximum flexibility and utility, we have partnered with ORCID so that you can export your verified review history from Publons to your ORCID profile. 

 

Once your ORCiD profile is linked, you can select ‘Grant Publons permission to update your ORCID works’ and confirm authorization request. Please then click on "Export Publications to ORCID now"

 

Once set up, every eligible verified review added to your Publons record will automatically be exported to your ORCiD profile. Publons transmits this data securely and makes sure not to compromise reviewer anonymity or infringe on journal policies. 

 
Eligible reviews are those which meet the following criteria: 


  • Has been verified 
  • Is pre-publication 
  • Is associated with a journal which has an ISSN or eISSN 
  • Is either signed or associated with the journal 

 
 

On ORCiD, every review is associated with a unique resolvable identifier that links back to a record on Publons. This allows the community to confirm the review has been verified and, if it’s an open review, allows them to read it too. 

 
What does it mean to “Keep my ORCID publication list up to date with my Publons account”?  
 

If you have given Publons access to update your works on ORCID you may have seen the option to “Keep my ORCID publication list up to date with my Publons account” in the ORCID permission settings page of your Publons private dashboard. 

 
 

Enabling this option will mean that any eligible publication added to your Publons account will be automatically added to your ORCID record.  These automatic exports should occur within ten minutes of a publication being added. 

 

Eligible publications are those which: 


  • Were not imported from ORCID 
  • Have either a DOI or a Web of Science accession number 

 

Publications which have been exported to ORCID are unable to be deleted from Publons unless we can remove their exported counterparts.  This means that ORCID sync must be enabled to delete synced publications from your Publons profile.  


You can do this by checking the box in your ORCID permission settings, as seen in the example below.
 

 

In order to enable “Keep my ORCID publication list up to date with my Publons account” you will need to follow these steps: 


  • Add your ORCID in your Publons account settings. 
  • Grant Publons access to update your works on ORCID.  You can do this from the ORCID permission settings page of your Publons private dashboard. 
  • Check the box alongside “Keep my ORCID publication list up to date with my Publons account”. 
  • Save your permission settings by clicking the “Save” button at the foot of the page.
