Exploring the relationship between persistent identifiers and research information citizenship

2016-11-10T15:21:14Z (GMT) by Simon Porter
To attach a persistent identifier to a representation of a person, Organisation or research object is to provide that representation a way to travel across research systems and Organizational boundaries. The background infrastructure required for this to happen is as much social as it is technical. This presentation will attempt to unpack the social element of this infrastructure through the concept of research information citizenship. As research information citizens, what are our obligations to the research data that we consume, create and communicate? Particular focus will be on unpacking the use of ORCID and GRID identifiers in terms of trust, roles and responsibilities within the research community.
