Welcome to myORBi


Identify yourself with your ULiège/CHU id (Uxxxx, Cxxxx, Sxxxx). You must have a valid ULiège email. 

On your MyORBi dashboard, pending tasks are displayed  and can be accessed instantly . You can see your most recently added publications, begin a new submission or access your personal statistics.

The MyORBi menu is located in the upper right corner of the screen. Click on your name to bring it up and access all myORBi features:

  • MyORBi: myORBi homepage
  • My Unfinished deposits: References to finalise (in progress, to validate, to sign...)
  • My Publications : List of your publications in search format
  • My Reports: export a publications list
  • My Statistics: your personnal statistics only
  • My Profile: manage profile, add your ORCID, choose a representative
  • My Copy request: management of reprints

Adding publications

There are several ways to add a publication in ORBi: 

  • with an identifier (DOI, PubMed, Scopus, ArXiv) when you have one :  See the tutorial
  • manual encoding : see the tutorial
  • by importing a file containing several references extracted from external databases such as Scopus, Pubmed or Arxiv or other tools in a standard format such as BibteX or RIS : see the tutorial
  • By adding the pdf with recovery of basic data (title, author). However, here the quality of the retrieval varies significantly from one pdf to another : See the tutorial

You will then need to check and complete the reference information and add the full text before validating the reference.

How to create an import file


You can export one or more publications from a search result or from the detailed view of a publication by clicking on the button

Then select the "Pubmed" format then click on "Create file"

The file created can be imported directly into ORBi via the options for adding references.


You can export one or more publications by clicking on the "Export" button:

from a detailed reference

from a search result

Then select the CSV format and check all the column headers to get all the data exportable from Scopus

Finally click on "Export" to download and save the file.

Arxiv via NASA/ADS

Do your search on NASA/ADS and select the reference(s) you wish to export. Be careful, if one of your references contains a large number of authors it is better to import it alone.

In the export function, choose the "Endnote" format and save the file created.

Other sources

You can import all your reference files in standard BibteX or RIS formats into ORBi. These formats are offered by all the major bibliographic databases and other reference management tools such as Arxiv (via NASA ADS), Google Scholar, Endnote, Zotero...

Note that the ORBi import tool has been developed according to the standard format. However,  there may be great variability in the way the data is encoded. It is therefore possible that the importation does not always give the expected results.

Modifying publications

It is possible to modify a publication by clicking on the button

  • Via MyORBi and the page with all your publications 
  • Via the detailed reference if you are logged in

A copy of the reference is created to which you make your changes. It is then imperative to validate this copy so that it replaces the archived reference.

The references must be modified directly or at the latest during the day. The copies will not be kept beyond that.

Generate your list of publications

ULiège members can generate publication lists from their MyORBi. They can contain: 

  • Their own publications (this is the default option)
  • The publications of several authors
  • The publications of a department or research unit
  • a subset of publications defined through a search

These lists can be customised according to your needs (year range, type of document, keywords) and can be exported in multiple formats.

Publication report templates are available: 

  • Faculty templates that fit the research discipline and the evaluation criteria of the faculties concerned
  • FRS-FNRS template

Share your list of publications with a URL

In ORBi you can obtain a URL that leads to your list of publications. Here are two complementary methods :

1. Your publication list formatted according to our faculty models
From MyOrbi > My reports : select filters, model and sort order then choose Html output. Generate your report. This opens in a new web browser tab. Copy-paste its URL.

This method allows you to share a structured list of publications with a maximum of filtering, sorting and index combination possibilities.

2. Your ORBi profile page
From MyOrbi > My profile : click on "View profile page". This opens in a new web browser tab. Copy-paste its URL.

With this method you share your list of publications and gives the possibility of launching a search via a dedicated button. In addition you have various information such as your ORCID, your main areas of research, your most used keywords, your main co-authors, some links to your social networks and to the ULiège directory.

In addition to these two possibilities, you can obtain, via the MyOrbi > My Widgets menu, other URLs which will allow you to integrate your list of publications in a website.

Personalise your profile

You can personalise your ORBi profile and add certain information. Make sure to always validate your modifications by clicking on the button

In addition to your basic information, you can display on your profile:

  • Your ORCID and link it to your myORBi profile  Learn +
  • Data from the ULiège phonebook. To do this you must check the box "I agree that the above data will be displayed in my profile page" then click on the button "Update"
  • Your list of publications according to a predefined display template. Choose the desired model from the drop-down list and update your profile.

Recover your photo and various information in ORBi from MyULiège

From MyOrbi > My profile > Check "I accept that the data coming from my MyULiège profile will be displayed on ORBi" then click on "Update Profile". ORBi will then display the information it has retrieved from your MyULiège profile.

To add other information or if your photo has not been recovered, go to > Staff > Edit my profile. You will be able to:

  • add a biography or a personal website for example by clicking on the "+" button.
  • modify the visibility of each element including your photo (to allow orbi to retrieve it you must check the "Internet" visibility).

Don't forget to return to your ORBi profile page to click on "Update".

Link your ORCID to MyORBi

What is an ORCID?

The Open Researcher & Contributor ID (ORCID) is a unique identifier for authors of scientific publications. It makes it possible to clearly identify a researcher, to link him to his publications and to solve problems of disambiguation.   Learn +

Create your ORCID

If you don’t already have one: create your ORCID now in less than one minute.

Connect your ORCID to MyORBi

With only a few clicks, link myORBi to ORCID and choose the authorisations you wish to assign to us.

By giving ORBi permission to link with your ORCID, you will allow us to:

  • register and display your login
  • link ORBI information with ORCID information
  • automatically push your membership into ORCID

You can also link your ORCID with publisher manuscript submission systems and funding application systems that use it.

You stay in control!
At any given time, you and you alone decide who can access your data and to what extent.

Each piece of information, regardless of the others, can be public, private or accessible only to "trusted parties", i.e. organisations and persons that you have defined as such. The trusted parties and organisations can be managed in your account settings. All given permissions can easily be revoked.
