    1. 1. International Standard Name Identifier ISNI - ISNI.org For Authors, Researchers, Inventors, Performers, Organizations, and Other Contributors Jeff Baer, VP, Research Solutions, ProQuest
    2. 2. What is ISNI • • • ISO-certified global standard (ISO 27729) Numerical representation of your name for linking accuracy (transliteration, same names) Identifies contributors to content creation – Researchers – Inventors – Institutions – Authors – Publishers – Musicians – Composers – Political figures – Actors – Music/film studios – Bloggers – Any person or organization who contributes to or is the subject of content
    3. 3. Interoperability with ORCID • ORCID numbers are a subset of ISNI’s database • There is ISNI representation on the ORCID Technical Steering Group • At this stage, a researcher may have both an ORCID and an ISNI, but the two organizations are working on aligning towards single assignment
    4. 4. What does ISNI do? • Unambiguously identifies a public identity • Assigns a persistent and unique identifier • Provides link resolution between disparate data sets
    5. 5. ISNI links • Standard identification of researcher names • Bridge identifier linking disparate data sets 5
    6. 6. Who is ISNI? • • • • • • IFFRO OCLC British Library Bibliothèque Nationale Français CISAC ProQuest – the only for-profit organization on the board.
    7. 7. Why Should I Use ISNI? • Data quality – ISNI applications are systematically reviewed, merged, de-duped – Manual correction is part of the process as needed (teams from British Library and Bibliothèque Nationale) – Deprecated ISNIs remain linked and resolve to current ISNIs
    8. 8. Why Should I Use ISNI? • Link to larger web – Bridge identifier across multiple domains (music professor, e.g., linking across academic and music databases) – Critical component in Linked Data and Semantic Web applications – Pseudonym functionality if you want to publish your work that way
