ORCID–WDS Strategic Workshop: Adoption of PIDs in Asia–Oceania

This jointly hosted session by ORCID (WDS Associate Member) and WDS will be held on 24 September (05:00–08:00 UTC/14:00–17:00 JST) during the 'Global Collaboration on Data Beyond Disciplines' international symposium. It will introduce to the Asia–Oceania community Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) from both global and national perspectives, and their importance as a part of global open research infrastructure. It will also (1) raise awareness about PIDs and their use across different scientific disciplines; (2) explore practical use cases of PIDs by national data systems and data repositories, especially within the Asia–Oceania context; and (3) showcase PID standards/best practices, as well as identify the resulting opportunities and benefits.
