# How to add Orcid ID in LaTex article? [duplicate]

I want to add Orcid ID in Latex article. I have tried several methods that are used for other documentclasses, but none of them worked for me.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please provide more details: Which document class do you use, and where do you want to add the Orcid Id? Nov 28, 2020 at 16:11
• @gernot Thank you! I use article class. I want to add it to next to the author name. Nov 28, 2020 at 16:27
• If you want to have the id visible in the document, you could just use \thanks: \author{The Name\thanks{OrcID: 0000-0000-0000-0000}}. Otherwise see e.g. https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/275578/is-there-a-standard-way-to-include-orcid-in-tex-pdf Nov 28, 2020 at 17:02
• @Mico Well, the answer is linked in my answer, as well as the package that resulted from it.

If you have a very up-to-date TeX installation, you can use the orcidlink package.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\end{document}


Otherwise you can use this answer, which it is based on.

• The first method does not compile in my Overleaf account. The second method I tried previously, but it didn't run correctly. Maybe I should try again. Nov 28, 2020 at 16:21
• @tyMind Unfortunately, Overleaf is the very opposite of an up-to-date TeX installation. As I do not know what the second method is I can't say much.

• @tyMind Overleaf currently runs TeX Live 2020 but for stability and continuity reasons, doesn't update packages between TeX Live releases. The solution is to fetch the orcidlink.sty file from the maintainer's GitHub repository, place it in your project Overleaf project's folder, and then your document should process with no trouble.
