The ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network (ODIN) project team organised two webinars during 2014, linked to key events during the year.
September 9th 2014: After ODIN – looking to the future.
Why do we need persistent identifiers (PIDS)? What can we do with them – and what can’t we do without them? Given that the technology exists, why don’t researchers already have access to all the PIDs, systems and services that they could possibly need?
These are some of the questions that the ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network (ODIN) project has confronted as it surveyed the landscape of Persistent Identifier usage and adoption. We have completed a detailed gap analysis and set out recommendations for the most urgent steps to take to fill those gaps. Working with international partners, including arXiv, the Australian National Data Service and the Dryad Digital Repository and conducting interviews with stakeholders from multiple disciplines, publishers and e-infrastructure providers, we have refined and improved the ODIN roadmap to better access to an improved PID ecosystem.
This webinar took place on September 9 at 1500 (BST) / 1600 (CEST) / 1700 (EEST). The project team presented the ODIN Roadmap and discuss responses with experts from the scholarly communications community.
Jude England (British Library), Jennifer Lin (PLoS), Mikael Elbaek (Technical University of Denmark) and Kyle Cranmer (New York University, NYU Centre for Data Science)
The presentations and discussion are available here:
Josh Brown introduces the webinar, and Jude England presents the ODIN roadmap
Kyle Cranmer offers his thoughts on the ODIN roadmap
Mikael Elbaek considers issues raised by the ODIN roadmap
Jennifer Lin responds to the ODIN roadmap
The webinar panel discuss questions raised by the presentations
June 3rd 2014: building basic tools for interoperability
This webinar will be showcasing the latest tools building on ORCID and DataCite Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) and connections between them. It is an opportunity for any developers interested in working with ORCID, DataCite or other PIDs to learn about the data available, gain insight into the latest tools and services being built on this data and to question the teams working to advance the state of the art.
There will be demos and presentations from members of the ODIN team, including:
- Laura Paglione and Josh Brown (ORCID)
- Sebastian Peters (DataCite, TIB)
- Laura Rueda (CERN)
Tuesday June 3rd, at 09:30 (EDT) / 14:30 (BST) / 15:30 (CEST)
