Director of Strategic Initiatives
The research community has made significant progress in describing, supporting, and adopting persistent identifiers for people, datasets, and publications. However, despite excellent work undertaken by existing players, there is no consistently adopted, open, community-driven infrastructure providing organization identifiers. In this session, we will provide an overview of current and potential uses of organization identifiers, current state of the art, a summary of topical reports and working papers (NISO, Jisc/CASRAI, Crossref, RDA), then move to reviewing a draft proposal for a ‘minimum viable product’ to serve community needs. Our goals are to stimulate conversation and gather input on a set of next steps for an open organization identifier infrastructure.
