Group details

Case Statement: 
IG Established

The pervasive use of persistent identifiers is seen as a foundational element in anchoring and referencing research data in an interoperable way. The purpose of the Persistent Identifier Interest Group is to synchronize identifier-related efforts, address important and emerging PID-related topics and coordinate activities, including appropriate RDA Working Groups, to practically solve PID-related issues from the engaged communities.

The PID IG will foster working groups to address specific topics, and in particular to address and define emerging PID use cases in the domain of data, and whether the research community would benefit from a global open identifiers for persons, data objects, organizations, grants, etc. Where applicable the PID-IG will collaborate with existing RDA working groups, or it will establish new working groups based on priority areas as identified at RDA plenaries.

FREYA Project Blog

Hi everyone,

Most of you probably already know the FREYA project, but I wanted to draw your attention to our project blog. We use the blog to publish posts about the FREYA project, our work, deliverables, conferences and meetings, and any other PID-related things.

Our most recent blog, for instance, gives an impression of the FORCE2018 meeting were FREYA was present: https://www.project-freya.eu/en/blogs/blogs/freya-force2018-making-pids-...

PID IG co-chair rotation

Dear PID IG members,
following discussions at and after the RDA Plenary 9 in Barcelona, we
would like to rotate the co-chairs of the PID IG, a process which is
also frequently encouraged by RDA. I will step down as co-chair and be
followed by Jonathan Clark from the DOI Foundation, whom I suspect many
of you know. I believe Jonathan's good spirit and energy will be a very
welcome addition to the group. Unless there are objections to this
decision, we will soon go ahead and request the rotation to be formally
made by the RDA secretariat.
