Do you already have an ORCID iD to showcase your work? Does it contain all your scientific output? The Library has established a link between Pure and ORCID to help you complete your ORCID iD. This link sends all Wageningen output directly from Pure to ORCID.

What is ORCID?

The ORCID iD is a unique identifier that distinguishes you and your work from other researchers and their work. ORCID compiles publication data from other profiles, such as Mendeley and the Scopus Author ID. ORCID lets you create a complete overview of your scientific career. Learn more about ORCID and its advantages in this short video and blog post.

What is Pure?

Pure is WUR’s research output system. Each staff member has a Pure profile. The profile contains your name, your group and your WUR output. This output ranges from peer-reviewed journal articles to reports. The information in Pure is displayed in Staff Publications. It is entered into the system by the secretaries of the chair groups and the institutes.

Linking your Pure and ORCID profiles

The Library has established a link between Pure and ORCID to help you fill your ORCID profile. Once you activate the Pure-ORCID-Pure link, the link automatically sends information from your Pure profile to your ORCID. This automatic transfer ensures ORCID contains all your WUR-output.
