Publishers, help us capture Events for your content

The day I received my learner driver permit, I remember being handed three things: a plastic thermosealed reminder that age sixteen was not a good look on me; a yellow L-plate sign as flimsy as my driving ability; and a weighty ā€˜how to driveā€™ guide listing all the things that I absolutely must not, under any circumstances, even-if-it-seems-like-a-really-swell-idea-at-the-time, never, ever do.

Organization Identifier Working Group Update

About 1 year ago, Crossref, DataCite and ORCID announced a joint initiative to launch and sustain an open, independent, non-profit organization identifier registry to facilitate the disambiguation of researcher affiliations. Today we publish governance recommendations and product principles and requirements for the creation of an open, independent organization identifier registry and invite community feedback.

PIDapalooza is back and wants your PID stories

Now in its second year, this ā€œopen festival of persistent identifiersā€ brings together people from all walks of life who have something to say about PIDs.

The OI Project gets underway planning an open organization identifier registry

At the end of October 2016, Crossref, DataCite, and ORCID reported on collaboration in the area of organization identifiers.

Crossrefā€™s Annual Meeting is now Crossref LIVE16

Everyone is invited to our free annual event this 1-2 November in London. (Register here)! In years past, only Crossref members typically attended theĀ [Crossref Annual Meeting](/crossref-live-annual).Ā This year, we looked at the event with new eyes. We realized that weā€™d have even richer conversations, more creative energy, and the meeting would be even better for our membersĀ if we could rally the entire community together. So we decided to re-develop our annual event from the ground-up.

Announcing PIDapalooza - a festival of identifiers

The buzz is building around PIDapalooza - the first open festival of scholarly research persistent identifiers (PID), to be held at theĀ Radisson Blu Saga Hotel Reykjavikon November 9-10, 2016. PIDapalooza will bring together creators and users of PIDs from around the world to shape the future PID landscape through the development of tools and services for the research community. PIDs support proper attribution and credit, promote collaboration and reuse, enable reproducibility of findings, foster faster and more efficient progress, and facilitate effective sharing, dissemination, and linking of scholarly works.
