Digital Science - GRID 425/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry GRID ID ISNI ID HESA Data: UKPRN: 10005553 INSTID: 0141 Name: Royal Holloway and Bedford New College UKPRN Royal Holloway, University of London UCAS Data: Code: R72 Official Name: Royal Holloway, University of London Short name: RHUL Global Research Identifier Database https://grid.ac/
  5. 5. Jisc/CASRAI-UK Pilot 5 OrgIdWorking Group - Outputs » Landscape Study – a report to inform the Working Group on the current use of organisational identifiers was commissioned and delivered (Sept 2013) › http://repository.jisc.ac.uk/5381/ » Review – commissioned by theWorking Group to review a core set of organisational identifiers (ISNI, Ringgold, Digital Science (GRID) and UKPRN) (Dec 2014) › http://repository.jisc.ac.uk/5853/ » Use cases – based on key use cases from the Research Lifecycle, these have been identified by the Working Group and further developed under the OrgId Review (Dec 2014) › http://repository.jisc.ac.uk/5853/ One single candidate would not fulfil all the criteria, but it would be useful to separate the infrastructure element (the provision and maintenance of the OrgID itself) and the service element (the services offered both to registrants and to end users of the services) 25/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry
  6. 6. OrgId Review - Recommendations 6 » A hybrid approach with ISNI as the backbone. Institutions and others needing to register and use OrgIDs should use a solution which relies on and feeds the minimum data set curated by ISNI » In considering registration solutions and value-added services, organisations should bear in mind that, in the short term, Ringgold is the most developed agency conforming to the above » Other service providers should be encouraged to deliver value added services on top of ISNI, for example, Digital Science could be a registration agency for ISNIs in a similar way to Ringgold » Jisc should investigate the possibilities and costs of a bulk deal for UK academic institutions for value added services with Ringgold and (in time) with other service providers » Crossref should consider creating and maintaining a crosswalk or table of equivalence between FundRef IDs and ISNI » UK stakeholders (BL, HEFCE and others) to consider the need for a UK-based registration agency (like Bibliothèque nationale de France) and how bulk creation/checking of ISNIs (and bulk registration and/or the creation of a table of equivalence for UKPRNs) might take place for UK academic institutions and other organisations involved in research 25/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry Input into…….

  9. 9. 2016 update 9 » Recommended ISNI+ as a solution only if the following concerns are addressed: › Sustainability › Efficiency › Support › Governance › Openness » The world has moved on and it seems possible that another solution will emerge and we are keeping a watching brief » The issues are important for any new proposed service so they can be presented as universally, generically applicable » A solution will only be adopted when key stakeholders have been persuaded to adopt it and integrate it with their existing systems » Establishing the benefits are key to selling any solution, but to achieve a consensus requires community engagement 25/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry

  13. 13. ISNI 1325/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry Launch of ISNI Organizations Registry (August 2017) » ISNI International Agency Ltd (ISNI-IA) announces changes to its infrastructure focused on providing open identifiers for organisations working in the field of scholarly communications - http://www.isni.org/content/isni-organizations-registry-identifying-organizations-scholarly-supply-chain » Milestones: › Segmentation of the organisation records and respective ISNI IDs into a database with a searchable user interface › The ISNI Organization IDs and associated core metadata available to all under a CC0 licence › Regular data downloads of the entire ISNI Organizations Registry › An API for retrieval of ISNI IDs and records with the ability to resolve an existing ISNI ID › An online form for organisations to supply updates to their own record › A new Advisory Board with representatives of the scholarly communications community to guide the efforts of the ISNI Organizations Registry » This development responds to the requirements of the academic research community for identifying organisations, as articulated in a number of working groups (initiated by Jisc CASRAI-UK, OCLC, ORCID/Crossref/DataCite, and others)
  14. 14. Future 14 » Any registry must address the following concerns: › Sustainability › Efficiency › Support › Governance › Openness » Interoperable – bridging identifier » A solution will only be adopted when key stakeholders have been persuaded to adopt it and integrate it with their existing systems » Establishing the benefits are key to selling any solution, but to achieve a consensus requires community engagement 25/06/2018 Overview of OrgIDs and the requirements for an open registry
