The ORCID US consortium, managed by Lyrasis, is five years old in 2023 – hear about their progress so far and plans for the future in Alice Meadows’ interview with their PID Program Leader, Sheila Raybun
Read what Chefs Angela Cochran and Alice Meadows (respectively) have to say about the recent ISMPP conference and RDA 20th Plenary Meeting in today’s Smorgasbord
A new interactive report on the research lifecycle designed to offer a deeper understanding of the state of scholarly metadata in 2023 is presented.
Rebecca Lawrence discusses how connections across all aspects of the system are needed for open research to flourish and deliver upon its promise.
Why are national PID strategies having a moment, and why should you care? Find out in today’s post by Alice Meadows.
Research bureaucracy and administrative burden has become so overpowering that many researchers are reporting that they don’t have time to do any research anymore. Phill Jones argues that technology in the form of PIDs will go a long way to fixing this.
Funder guidance is too vague when it comes to identifiers and metadata. It needs to get specific to be effective.
In the light of CCCs acquisition of Ringgold last week, three Chefs, Phill Jones, Roger Schonfeld, and Todd Carpenter reflect on the motivations for the move and its implications for PIDs and organisational identifiers.
To round off Peer Review Week 2021, Phill Jones and Alice Meadows share work under way to map out a PID-optimized workflow for peer review – and invite your feedback!
In the second of two posts on persistent identifiers in scholarly communications, Phill Jones and Alice Meadows share information about a new cost-benefit analysis showing the value of widespread PID adoption
Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are an essential part of the open research infrastructure, but need widespread adoption to be effective. Learn about Jisc’s plans to increase adoption through a national PID consortium in this post by Alice Meadows.
What does a strong and sustainable research infrastructure look like? How close are we to building one? What improvements are needed? This summary of a recent SSP webinar addresses these questions and more.
What is the Research Organization Registry (ROR) and why do we need it? Learn more from the team behind it (CDL, Crossref, DataCite, and Digital Science) in this interview with Alice Meadows.
The third PIDapalooza took place in Dublin in late January. Alice Meadows shares some of her thoughts on this festival of open identifiers.
Outreach was the word of the moment at PIDapalooza 2018. So how can we improve persistent identifier adoption and usage by researchers?
