    • Why now?  Number of journals increasing by 3.5% per annum*  Number of articles increasing by 3% per annum, current output is 1.8-1.9 million per year*  Number of researchers increasing by 3% per annum*  Now stand at between 6 and 9 million (depending on definition)*  Increased demand for anytime/anywhere access  Growth in use of online systems for discovering and distributing content has increased the need for unambiguous identification of people and parties exchanging that content * Ware, M and Mabe, M, The STM Report, 2012
    • Unique Identifiers What are they? How can they help?  Numeric or alpha-numeric designations which are associated with a single entity  Entities can be an institution, person, or piece of content  Enable the disambiguation of each entity  Proper understanding of the customer, author, reader or institution  Proper identification of content object, article, product, or package  Can be used internally or in conjunction with external partners
    • What are Institutional Identifiers for? Disambiguating:  UCL:  University College London (UK)  Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium)  Universidad Cristiana Latinoamericana (Ecuador)  University College Lillebælt (Denmark)  Centro Universitario Celso Lisboa (Brazil)  Union County Library (USA)  University of Oxford  Univ. Oxford  Oxford University  Library, Oxford Univ.  Radcliffe Science Library  Bodleian Library  Bodleian, Oxford  Oxford, University of Consolidating:
    • What are Individual Identifiers for? Disambiguating:  Wang  Li  Smith  Jones  John J Smith  J.J. Smith  Smith, J  Smith, John J Consolidating: Simplifies challenges associated with name changes Simplifies challenges associated with career progression
    • Institutional Identifiers – which ones?  JISC and CASRAI (Consortia Advancing Standards in Research Administration Information) report on Organisation IDs: http://repository.jisc.ac.uk/5381/1/CC549D001- 1.0_org_ID_landscape_study.pdf  Examined the landscape of organisational identifiers in the UK and identified 23 different IDs  Based on interviews with key individuals  Lots of detail on use cases for publishing, funders, and institutions
    • CASRAI report  Disambiguating organisational information from multiple sources typically described as “a nightmare”  Benefits from effective unique identifiers are truly realised when data is shared  Key aspects of identifiers that support the widest range of uses:  Governance  Trust  Transparency  Temporal  Appropriate metadata

ISNI ORCID Ringgold ID
    • ISNI  International Standard Name Identifier  ISO 27729  Key Statistics  ISNI holds public records of over7.49 million identities, including:  7 million individuals (of which 800,000 are researchers)  490,000 organisations  The ISNI database is a cross-domain resource, contributed to by 29 institutions and databases, and 40 major national and research libraries  http://www.isni.org/
    • ISNI  “The mission of the ISNI International Authority (ISNI-IA) is to assign to the public name(s) of a researcher, inventor, writer, artist, performer, publisher, etc. a persistent unique identifying number in order to resolve the problem of name ambiguity in search and discovery; and diffuse each assigned ISNI across all repertoires in the global supply chain so that every published work can be unambiguously attributed to its creator wherever that work is described”  Example: 0000 0004 1936 8948
    • ISNI ISNI Number ISNI Number Party ID 2Party ID 1 Proprietary Information and/or Metadata Proprietary Information and/or Metadata “ISNI will act as a bridge identifier across multiple domains and become a critical component in Linked Data and Semantic Web applications”
    • ISNI
    • ORCID  ORCID is designed to persistently identify and disambiguate scholarly researchers and attach them to research output.  ORCID identifiers utilize a format compliant with the ISNI ISO standard.  ISNI has reserved a block of identifiers for use by ORCID, so there will be no overlaps in assignments.  Recorded as http://orcid.org/0000-0001-2345-6789 http://about.orcid.org/ http://www.isni.org/
    • ORCID  Key Statistics  Live ORCID IDs: 643,043  ORCID IDs with at least one work: 132,705  ORCID provides two core functions:  a registry to obtain a unique identifier and manage a record of activities.  APIs that support system-to-system communication and authentication.
    • ORCID
    • Ringgold IDs  375,000 Institutional records  Hierarchical  Rich metadata  Working closely with the ISNI Technical Committee  Ringgold data considered base data for institutional records  Ringgold will be providing ISNIs within our data  Ringgold is an ISNI Registration Agency  Working closely with ORCID
    • Ringgold IDs
    • Diffusion Consortium Author Submission and Peer Review System Publisher Online Host or Technology Partner Subscription Agent or Sales Agent Fulfilment House or System Library Discovery Service End User Data Providers and Systems (multiple) Consortium Societies Funders
    • Diffusion  ORCIDs appearing in publications  Ringgold to supply ISNI IDs  ORCID using ISNIs to identify institutional affiliations  Proquest’s Scholar Universe is ingesting ISNIs into it’s database  MacMillan is using ISNIs within their Digital Science service  Bowker has ingested 2 million ISNIs into Books in Print  British Library Ethos database allowing researchers to import data into their ORCID record and will be able to attach ORCIDs to their thesis in Ethos  CISAC running their royalty system based on ISNIs  Wikipedia is ingesting ISNIs
