Mr Paul Jessop
I act through my company County Analytics Ltd as Technology Adviser to the International DOI Foundation which is a not-for-profit membership organization that is the governance and management body for the federation of Registration Agencies providing Digital Object Identifier (DOI) services and registration, and is the registration authority for the ISO standard (ISO 26324) for the DOI system. The DOI system provides a technical and social infrastructure for the registration and use of persistent interoperable identifiers, called DOIs, for use on digital networks. As well as IDF, clients include entities responsible for other identifier systems such as ISRC (recorded music), ISNI (names of parties in the creative sectors), ISTC (textual works). I am very involved in standards work in ISO, W3C and industry consortia.
