[IDs/Repos] are doing it wrong: a debate

The future of open science lies in a distributed network of resources bolstered by core research infrastructures. Resources are created, housed and preserved at every level in the research ecosystem, but repositories, whether subject or institutional, are a crucial network guaranteeing access to and preservation of precious scholarly resources. Ensuring that these resources are discoverable, reusable and bringing recognition for their creators is at the heart of the repository community's drives to improve their services. Bringing PIDs into the heart of repository workflows and delivering their potential to increase the effectiveness and openness of research communication is essential. By marrying established PIDs, such as ORCID iDs, to popular repository platforms, like DSPace and Fedora, we can leverage the power of both networks, adding new PIDs to repositories and making more of the connections between resources visible. In this session, we will discuss the ways that repository and identifier systems need to evolve to improve discovery and reuse. Representatives from Duraspace and ORCID will debate the ways that their communities are working together to embed PIDs in repository workflows, and present their competing priorities and visions for standards and best practices for identifiers in the repository space.
