Presentation on Risks and Trust in pursuit of a well-functioning PID infrastructure for research

On 8th December 2021, my colleague Pablo de Castro (University of Strathclyde, euroCRIS) gave a presentation on “Risks and Trust in pursuit of a well-functioning PID infrastructure for research”. He held this presentation on the occasion of the webinar “Persistent Identifiers Supported by Service Providers: A Case Study of CRIS Systems – the Polish Platform of Medical Research” organized by ORCID.

His presentation summarizes the approach and the very first results of a study that Pablo de Castro, Laura Rothfritz, Joachim Schöpfel and I are conducting on behalf of Knowledge Exchange. The study aims to improve the PID system for identifying scientific content. This is also reflected by the abstract to this presentation: “Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) and their infrastructures are considered to be of vital importance for accountability, reproducibility and credibility of today’s research. PIDs foster transparency in methods and scientific output, identification and referencing of scientific outputs, and thus contribute to Open Science and Open Scholarship. PIDs are essential for a wide range of requirements in science and science communication: Research funders, universities or other research institutions strive for a higher visibility, reproducibility, accountability and attribution of results to their funding efforts or organization. On the individual level, researchers (and also publishers) are eager to document their success measured in quantitative output of research products as well as the resonance they gain inside and outside academia.”
