Disciplinary case: DataCite DOIs and ORCID iDs integration at CERN

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 - 16:00

CERN maintains a number of tools and services to meet the literature and data needs of the high energy physics (HEP) community. As both a DataCite data centre and an ORCID member, CERN makes use of PIDs for identifying and linking research outputs. The author profiles in INSPIRE, the primary HEP literature aggregator, push and pull works from ORCID. DOIs are reserved for data sets in HEPData at time of submission and are minted upon release. These interconnected systems share metadata to give a more complete picture of a researcher's body of work, providing an example of PIDs in action.
