Simons orcid forum canberra 2018-PIDs in research

  1. 1. The value of persistent identifiers in research Natasha Simons (ARDC) & Josh Brown (ORCID) National ORCID Forum Canberra 6 September 2018
  2. 2. What’s the problem?
  3. 3. A persistent identifier is a long–lasting reference to a resource Image credit: Clifford Tatum & John Doove
  4. 4. PIDs have evolved Credit: Jonathan Clark, Persistent Identifiers: Why, what and how? THOR webinar, May 2017
  5. 5. PID systems have proliferated Marked by differences in: • Purpose • Scope • Underlying technology • Governance • Community uptake • Metadata • Cost • etc
  6. 6. Researchers Publications Data Software Equipment Funding PIDs in Research PIDs play a key role in research discoverability, accessibility, citability and reproducibility. They can connect: Methods ..and more
  7. 7. The power of connecting PIDs – Scholix example
  8. 8. But are we making the most of PIDs?
  9. 9. Where PIDs add value - workflows Source:

  13. 13. Getting the most value from PIDs – funders example Challenges: Grant applications, grant review and decision making, reporting and impact tracking Benefits PIDs can bring: Automate standard data collection, improve data quality, improve reporting accuracy, reduce burden on researchers, demonstrate impact of the funding agency itself What funders could consider doing: 1. Assign DOIs for grants 2. Collect ORCIDs at grant application and reporting 3. Push grant information to ORCIDs 4. Require outputs to have a PID
  14. 14. Getting the most value from PIDs – publishers example Challenges: Article submission, review process, policy compliance (own and other peoples), making the connections between articles and related outputs Benefits PIDs can bring: Better user experience for authors, better experience for reviewers, massively reduced administrative overhead, better connected articles, enhanced discovery and citation, tracking citations/impact What publishers could consider doing: 1. Require ORCIDs at article submission 2. Assign DOIs to articles 3. Require PIDs for all inputs to the article e.g. datasets, software, samples, grants etc. 4. Embed PIDs in article metadata 5. Collect PIDs as early on as possible (e.g. during submission process) 6. Integrate with Scholix to exchange article-data links
  15. 15. International PID initiatives Working on PIDs to make research more: • Finable • Accessible • Citable • Connected
