Managing PID collisions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

PIDs are increasingly being used to identify research resources - things that are used to perform a research study. There are as many types of research resources - rocks, antibodies, protein structures, natural history collections, databases, software applications… - as there are identifier types applied to them - DOIs, RRIDs, IGSNs, Accession Numbers… What is the purpose of a research resource ID? Is there enough similarity between the resource types to justify a common approach? Do collisions between identifier types affect adoption - such as PDB IDs and DOIs for protein structures? Or organization IDs and RRIDs for user facilities? To manage collisions, are additional infrastructural elements required? What principles or policies could be helpful in enabling different ID systems to co-exist?
