The first case study “The role of research funders in the consolidation of the PID landscape” from our study on Risks and Trust in pursuit of a well functioning Persistent Identifier infrastructure for research commissioned by Knowledge Exchange (KE) is published. It was mainly written by Pablo de Castro with some support from Laura Rothfritz, Joachim Schöpfel and me.

This case study is part of a series that has been produced within the study mentioned before. It aims to explore the key role research funders are expected to play in the gradual adoption of an ever-wider range of PIDs across European countries. The study examines matters such as the endorsement of PIDs by research funders and opportunities for cross-funder collaboration. In addition it looks at the potential differences in the technical workflows for PID adoption among others.
The main outcome of this work will be a report examining the current PID landscape with an emphasis on its risks and trust-related issues.
This report, “Building the Plane as We Fly It”: the Promise of Persistent Identifiers, and the remaining complementary case studies will be published soon. You will find the list of case studies produced in the course of this project here.
The case study with the title “The role of research funders in the consolidation of the PID landscape” is also available as a download directly from the scidecode website.
