7. ODIN Objectives
Requirement for a sustainable and participative
persistent identifier e-infrastructure in support of
data-intensive open science.
ORCID and DataCite are emerging as participative
initiatives which, if linked, can play significant role in
underpinning such e-Infrastructure.
ODIN proposed to explore these opportunities,
highlights gaps and roadmaps, and nurture
interoperability solutions, globally, and for specific
disciplines and beyond.
