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.
There are still barriers and hesitations around open research practices. Erika Pastrana and Simon Adar suggest that publishers and technology platforms can better support authors and drive uptake.
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.
Today’s post is the first of two in which we look at the state of persistent identifiers and what they mean for publishers—to coincide with the first meeting, on June 21, of the new UK Research Identifier National Coordinating Council (RINCC) and publication the same day of a Cost Benefit Analysis Report, funded by the UK Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) for Open Access project.
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.
Outreach was the word of the moment at PIDapalooza 2018. So how can we improve persistent identifier adoption and usage by researchers?
Think persistent identifiers are a bit boring? Think again! PIDapalooza, the first open festival of persistent identifiers, aims to challenge that view. Find out more, including how you can get involved.
A presentation to the 2016 ISMTE US Conference. Something of a “state of our industry” overview, or perhaps, everything I needed to know I learned from the other bloggers at The Scholarly Kitchen.
Inspired by this year’s VIVO conference, this post looks at why we need a better understanding of how the scholarly research infrastructure works today in order to keep improving it for the future.
