The lack of interoperability between tools presents a significant barrier to streamlining workflows throughout the research lifecycle. These gaps prevent the comprehensive collection and incorporation of research data and metadata into the research record captured during the active research phase. Furthermore, it limits the scope for passing this data and metadata on to data repositories, thus undermining FAIR data principles and reproducibility.
This session will explore several use cases of how tools are utilizing the passage of PIDs between systems as a means to build streamlined, FAIR workflows. Moving from theory to implementation involves many moving parts. The panel session explores issues, highlights existing integrations, and points to possible ways forward.
Goal of the session:
Explore evolving best practices for sharing and linking outputs to related scholarly works
Discuss challenges and benefits of tool interoperability
Explore what a PID - centered research workflow might look like and how this supports the creation and dissemination of FAIR data

Short introduction describing any previous activities:
The presenters have all been involved in multiple relevant previous activities, in their main professional roles, through participation in many RDA IGs and WGs relating to PIDs, repositories, research workflows, FAIR data and research infrastructures, and in other forums and organizations, such as IDCC, FORCE 11, and FAIR organizations.
All panelists have been involved, at various stages, with building infrastructure utilizing PIDs and their associated metadata. For example, the DMPTool recently integrated with the ELN, RSpace to add value to DMPs by linking them to datasets thus allowing DMPs to become “living documents.” This integration, as with all of the other integrations that will be discussed in this session, seeks to reduce the burden on researchers in moving descriptive information about their work with their outputs as they move throughout the research life cycle.
We are suggesting this session as a separate BOF, rather than associating it with an existing IG or WG, to highlight a missing element in the conversation about PIDs and workflows, namely the opportunities to enhance data FAIRification through incorporation of PIDs in research tools, and integration between research tools enabling the PIDs to pass between them at different stages of the research lifecycle.
