“A Research particle can only travel through a space created by its research information citizens” (1st Law of Research Data Mechanics)

In a research world where the descriptions of research objects including people, publications, grants, organisations and protocols are increasing enabled by persistent identifiers, multiple systems and institutions will have custodianship of a research records as they move through the research system.
