The National PID Strategies Interest Group aims to:
- Facilitate information exchange between those developing and/or delivering national PID strategies
Facilitate engagement between developers of national PID strategies and international PID providers such as ORCID, DataCite and CrossRef
Collaboratively develop the value proposition for national PID strategies overall as well as its component parts (such as grant identifiers, person identifiers, organisation identifiers) that can be reused/adapted by the community
Collect case studies of national PID strategies from countries across the globe
Maintain outputs (the Guide, Checklist and Case Studies) produced by the National PID Strategies WG
The RDA National PID Strategies Working Group was endorsed by RDA on 10 December 2021 to explore how Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) form part of national policy and research infrastructure implementation frameworks. The Group recognised that there are systemic and network benefits from widespread and consistent PID adoption, and funders, government agencies, and national research communities have created PID consortia or policies (including mandates) in pursuit of these benefits. The Working Group concluded in June 2023 producing a Guide, Checklist and Case Studies. With national PID strategies on the rise and in rapid development, the Interest Group was formed to continue discussions and build on the outputs of the Working Group.
