Community Meets Technology - National Level Identifier Services in Australia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As part of the strategy for "joined up" research in Australia, identifier services are included in the national research infrastructure. Service providers such as the Australian Research Data Commons (which includes the Australian National Data Service) and the Australian Access Federation raise awareness of and promote the benefits of connecting research through the use of persistent identifiers. We also provide tools, infrastructure or access to a number of identifier systems such as ORCID, Handle, DOI, IGSN, PURL, and RAID.

How do we engage institutions in adopting PIDs? We have a skills program that includes a heavy dose of PIDagogy of course! In our program of events from workshops to webinars we teach and persuade our community to adopt and use PIDs and make the most of our services. And when organisations want to implement or integrate, there is dedicated support and consultancy to make it easy. And funders are getting on board too to try and make as coherent a system as possible.  Sometimes our strategies have worked well and other times we’ve had more of a challenge. Though not perfect by any means the "Australian model" represents a holistic approach embracing technology, people, policy, infrastructure, support, and strategy.
