Import from ORCID is a plugin for EPrints that allows you to import publications for a given author identified by an ORCID.

The plugin demonstrates how an EPrints repository can interface with the ORCID Tier 1 API.

Given an author's ORCID, the plugin queries the Tier 1 API and retrieves a list of works published by that author.

The metadata describing each work may include work-citation-format (for example, BibTeX) and/or multiple work-external-identifier-type (for example, DOI, PubMed ID). Where the work-citation-format or work-external-identifier-type can be mapped to an EPrints import plugin an Import option is displayed next to the work.
