The Dash team has now added a second way to login and submit. In addition to using Single Sign-On, users now have the ability to login with ORCiD. This means that not only can you authenticate with ORCiD, but once you have logged in this way, your ORCiD ID will connect to your Dash account. The next times that you submit to Dash, your ORCiD ID will auto populate in your submission form.
To back-up a little: ORCiD is a persistent identifier used to distinguish researchers from one another, and connect researchers with their research. If you are a researcher and do not currently have an ORCiD, sign up!
To connect your ORCiD:
- Login using the button on the far right of the Dash homepage
- Here you will see two options. If you click on the top ORCiD button will send you out to the ORCiD authentication page, and after correctly entering your ORCiD info, send you back to Dash.
- Although you have now successfully authenticated with ORCiD, to ensure you are connected to your correct submitting instance (a campus, a department, DataONE, etc…) you will be asked to choose your Single Sign-On. This is the only time you will be asked to login twice.
- After successfully logging in with Single Sign-On you will have your account connected to your ORCiD. In the future, you will not need to repeat this process and instead you will either be able to save your login to your browser or choose one of the two options for logging in.If you have already submitted to Dash before, you may logout, and go through the same steps above. This process will tie your ORCiD to your existing account and allow for either ORCiD or Single Sign-On in the future.
