Capturing facilities: PID recomendations for identifying scientific equipment and infrastructure

Scientific user facilities are specialized government-sponsored research infrastructure available for external use to advance scientific or technical knowledge.  Researchers compete for access to the specialized equipment and infrastructure at these facilities.  However, facility use is not captured in publisher workflows, making it difficult for the sponsor agencies and host institutions (typically government laboratories) to assess the scientific impact from these public investments.  This issue was discussed by the Society for Science at User Research Facilities (SSURF) at the first PIDapalooza meeting in Rekjavijk in 2016. In 2017, ORCID convened a group of publishers and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) user facilities managers to ascertain what data would help agencies and facilities to map impact, what PIDs would facilitate the description of the facilities, and how to enable collection in a manner that optimizes reporting of scientific impact. The Working Group is developing a set of findings and recommendations, which it will share with other facilities for comment in 3Q 2017.  A presentation at PIDapalooza would provide a venue to share what we learned, solicit comment, and encourage the launch of pilot implementation projects.

I care about effective infrastructures for supporting open research, scholarship, and innovation. Talk to me about persistent identifiers, researcher involvement in managing their own information, ensuring credit for a wide range of contributions, and privacy. Or the Packers. Or piano...
