Session IN21A: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Across Community, National, and International Boundaries
IGSN: A Good Fit for this Session
• This session is about:
• Integrating data and services
• in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences
• across Community, National, and International Boundaries
• The IGSN was about:
• Integrating sample catalogs & data
• in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences
• across Community, National, and International Boundaries
• BUT: IGSN is now going beyond ESES

Project IGSN 2040: “Defining the Future of the IGSN as a
Global Persistent Identifier for Material Samples”
“develop a strategic plan and roadmap that will guide the
IGSN system in its next chapter so it will be able to fulfill its
mission of providing persistent, sustainable, and reliable
PID services to the international science community.”

What is the IGSN?
• Globally unique & persistent identifier for physical specimens
and samples
• Connects physical samples to digital data, making them
Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable (FAIR)
• federates sample metadata catalogs (F, A, R)
• links publications to online metadata profiles (I, R)
• allows previously impossible linking and integration of sample-
based observations across data systems
• paves the road toward advanced data mining of sample-based
data

Session IN21A: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Across Community, National, and International Boundaries
IGSN
• Originally developed for the Geosciences;
• Design driven by the needs of a community of researchers, collection curators,
and data infrastructure providers;
• Leveraged the Handle system as the technical basis for the IGSN;
• followed the example of DataCite for its governance structure and technical
architecture.

IGSN Adoption: Success!
• International non-profit organization established in
2011
• IGSN e.V. registered as non-profit in Germany
• 24 members in 5 continents
• Members are organizations that want to provide
registration services (Allocating Agents)
• geological surveys of the US, UK, Australia, and Korea
• large data service providers such as ARDC, SAEON
• research organizations and national labs (GFZ Potsdam,
CSIRO Australia, CNRS France)
• universities (e.g., Columbia University, Curtin University,
Oregon State University

Challenges for IGSN Architecture & Organization
• Rapidly growing demands of a global and
increasingly multi-disciplinary user community
• growing diversity of sample types
• widely varying level of system usage by different
Allocating Agents
• Within a landscape of maturing research data
infrastructures
• business model cannot sustain the organization
through the necessary professionalization of its
operations

IGSN 2040 Project: Objectives
Design a trustworthy, stable, and adaptable architecture for the IGSN as a
persistent unique identifier for material samples, both technically and
organizationally.
• attract, facilitate, and satisfy participation within and beyond the Geosciences,
• be a reliable component of the evolving research data ecosystem,
• be recognized as a trusted partner by data infrastructure providers and the science
community alike.

“In order to be useful and reliable, PID registration and resolution
systems need to be trustworthy and sustainable.”
[Wittenburg et al. 2017]
Session IN21A: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Across Community, National, and International Boundaries
Designing the New IGSN
• scale to a rapidly growing membership
• ensure more professional management for
trustworthy & sustainable services.
12/11/2018IN21A-01: Toward a Mature and Generic Persistent Identifier for Samples 13
Organization
Architecture
• accommodate new and more diverse use cases.
• ensure solid technical foundation to provide for
trustworthy & sustainable services.
• facilitate synchronization of IGSN with other PID
infrastructures such as DataCite and ORCID

Session IN21A: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Across Community, National, and International Boundaries
Synopsis
• The IGSN has successfully established a PID system for samples in the Earth Sciences, and adoption is
growing.
• Adoption is unexpectedly and rapidly expanding into other domains and globally due to lack of
alternatives that enable linking of data, publications, & samples.
• Exploding number (>6.7 million samples!) and diversity of samples require IGSN architecture to
become more scalable and flexible.
• The range of size and diversity of organizations that participate in the IGSN e.V. require a revisions of
the organizational and business model to become a sustainable and trustworthy partner in the
maturing research data infrastructure.
• The IGSN is undertaking a major strategic planning effort funded by the Sloan Foundation.
• The future name should reflect that IGSN is a PID for applications beyond Geo

  • 17. Session IN21A: Integrating Data and Services in the Earth, Space, and Environmental Sciences Across Community, National, and International Boundaries Synopsis • The IGSN has successfully established a PID system for samples in the Earth Sciences, and adoption is growing. • Adoption is unexpectedly and rapidly expanding into other domains and globally due to lack of alternatives that enable linking of data, publications, & samples. • Exploding number (>6.7 million samples!) and diversity of samples require IGSN architecture to become more scalable and flexible. • The range of size and diversity of organizations that participate in the IGSN e.V. require a revisions of the organizational and business model to become a sustainable and trustworthy partner in the maturing research data infrastructure. • The IGSN is undertaking a major strategic planning effort funded by the Sloan Foundation. • The future name should reflect that IGSN is a PID for applications beyond Geo 12/11/2018IN21A-01: Toward a Mature and Generic Persistent Identifier for Samples 17

Editor's Notes

  1. from major national entities (e.g., Geological Surveys, National Laboratories) to smaller research entities (e.g., universities)
  2. Review & revise IGSN governance, roles and responsibilities of members and agents, and business models to scale them to a rapidly growing membership, to ensure more professional management and a more solid technical foundation to provide for trustworthy & sustainable services. Ensure that management structure and architecture scale to accommodate new and more diverse use cases. Create an architectural framework that facilitates synchronization of IGSN with other PID infrastructures such as DataCite and ORCID
