Mendeley integrates with ORCID
You can already connect your ORCID ID with your Mendeley profile. In order to associate the accounts you just have to enter your Mendeley profile and in the section Others IDs click on Create or Connect your ORCID ID. In the next step you will be given the option of connecting your profile with your existent ORCID ID or creating a new one, carrying out the association at the same time.

If you need more information, check our ORCID guide or visit the Research Support Centre of your library.
