The University of Hong Kong ORCID Record Creation

The University creates ORCID records for HKU faculty that now have a HKU ResearcherPage in The HKU Scholars Hub – usually staff with UGC status of A ~ I, sometimes O. These faculty could choose to opt-out and no ORCID will be created for them. If you already have an ORCID record, please click “Provide Existing ORCID” to allow us to associate your HKU ResearcherPage with your ORCID identifier.

If you prefer to manually create your own ORCID record, you may click on, “Go to ORCID, Manually Create”. After you do so, could you please return to this page, and click on “Provide Existing ORCID”, and input your new ORCID iD there.

Other HKU faculty and students wishing an ORCID record can also go to ORCID and manually create one for themselves.

Please note that publishers have begun asking for ORCID identifiers during the manuscript submission process, and there are several benefits to getting an ORCID iD, which will follow you throughout your scholarly career. For more information visit
