Permanent Identifiers (PIDs) make connections across the scholarly community possible. We are familiar with DOI's for data, but how about ORCIDs for people or RORs for organizations. How is the ESIP community using identifiers and how can we benefit from that usage?

This is the first report from the Identifying ESIP Connections Funding Friday Project that started last summer. The focus so far has been on identifying organizations associated with ESIP using the Research Organization Registry. During this session we will introduces identifiers at four levels: U.S. Federal Agencies and Departments, ESIP Sponsors, ESIP Members, and ESIP Participants. Information on all of these levels is available on the ESIP Wiki.
  1. Maria Gould, the ROR Project lead at the California Digital Library will fill us in on ROOR and answer questions about RORs. (Presentation)
  2. Ted Habermann the PI of Identifying ESIP Connections will discuss this work and lead a working discussion of RORs

  • Generally positive attitude about using identifiers for organizations but all organizations in ESIP may not end up with RORs...
  • The granularity of RORs is an ongoing challenge and spans many challenges - multi-organization projects, changes as function of time.
  • How are research organizations defined? Do repositories have RORs? Wiki pages were good way to share information.
