How identifiers can help you in Open Science

Organisers & Speakers: Frances Madden - The British Library, Helena Cousijn - DataCite, Paolo Manghi - ISTI-CNR, Jessica Parland-von Essen - CSC, Ivo Wijnbergen
Duration: 2 hrs
Room: Miragaia Hall

In this workshop you will explore the identifier landscape and we hope that afterwards you will engage others to use and benefit from persistent identifiers (PIDs). Persistent identifiers are at the heart of the FAIR principles and are becoming increasingly important in all research workflows.

Workshop abstract

You are probably familiar with persistent identifiers like the DOI (digital object identifier) for publications and datasets. But do you know how they can make a researcher’s life easier? In this workshop you will explore the identifier landscape and we hope that afterwards you will engage others to use and benefit from persistent identifiers (PIDs). Persistent identifiers are at the heart of the FAIR principles and are becoming increasingly important in all research workflows.
The organising European projects OpenAIRE, FREYA and FAIRsFAIR are all involved in strengthening the role that PIDs can play in linking researchers, research outputs, and research information. This is essential for open science, and as such PIDs are an instrument in good research practice. In this workshop you’ll hear about:

target audience

Research data management trainers, research support staff, librarians, policy makers.
