Achieving persistence [clear filter]

String theory - tying more permanent, FAIRer knots with PIDs
This session will bring up (again) some of the issues from this paper http://cs.unibo.it/save-sd/2017/papers/html/philipson-savesd2017.html (slides at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.556984), that is, making PIDs more Findable and Accessible by means of e.g. distributed custodianship, Interoperable and Re-usable by assuring that they are also more *validatable* (e.g. through fixed string-lengths, restricted character sets, with embedded 'semantics'). Global uniqueness could be achieved without having unduly long strings through a modular design, in which different bits and pieces of the string have dedicated semantic content.

Adventures in rolling your own persistent identifier system.
What are the challenges and opportunities of designing promulgating your own persistent identifiers? For the last 3 years we have been actively providing, resolving, and promulgating Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs). Come to hear tales the woes and triumphs of managing a persistent identifier system and wrangling PIDs in the wild! Learn what you need to do early on to avoid becoming a victim of your own success! We will recount our lessons learned from building the RRID system and working with editors, publishers, users, and developers. We will use these lessons as the basis for lively conversation about common challenges that face any PID system. Finally we will explore opportunities for overcoming common challenges (such as crawling the literature) facing many members of PID community.

How preservation can happen without holding local copies
Content-addressable identification of scholarly resources enables new, post-custodial methods for achieving sustainable persistence of the scholarly record. Instead of continued reliance on traditional notions of centralized custodial management, post-custodial stewardship focuses on applying meaningful curatorial services to resources wherever they most naturally reside. In essence, it replaces the constraining necessity to *hold* content locally with an open-ended ability to *reference* it freely and actionably. This requires a robust infrastructure for global identification of scholarly assets through massively-distributed content-addressable solutions like IPFS or Dat.
