Manage Your Research Identity: Can I delegate ORCID maintenance to someone else?

You can grant permission to your research assistant or another trusted individual to maintain and update your ORCID account on your behalf by following the below steps:

  • Click on the drop down menu by your name in the upper right side of the page,

  • Scroll down to 'Account Settings',

  • On the new page, scroll down to 'Trusted individuals' section, (Trusted individuals must have an ORCID account themselves)

  • Type in the ORCID iD, email address or the name of the trusted individual and click on search,


  • When the trusted individual signs in to their account, they will be able to toggle between their own ORCID account and the delegated account.

Trusted individuals will be able to edit any information on your ORCID profile except your password and account details.
