The ORCID Premium Member API (application programming interface) provides instructions for the structure and elements needed within a digital system, for that system to integrate/communicate with the ORCID registry. Institutional members are granted credentials for integrating ORCID with 5 systems. The ORCID Collect & Connect Program provides a 5-step iterative process for meeting best practices in the technical aspects of integration.

Integrations begin in a sandbox environment before receiving production credentials. To get started, register for sandbox credentials, and consult the ORCID US Planning Guide.
