Jupyter and PIDs
Jupyter notebooks are increasingly being used in the computational sciences, for data analysis and storytelling, but they can also be an invaluable tool for working with PIDs in libraries. Interacting with services such as ORCID and Zenodo, Jupyter’s step-by-step process offers an iterative approach to exploring and analyzing these datasets for reporting and curation purposes. In addition, the notebooks can be shared, allowing workflows to be reproduced, analysis remixed and shared again. This talk will demonstrate Jupyter notebok-PID uses in the library context.

Do researchers need to care about PID systems?
A survey across 1400 scientists in the natural sciences and engineering across Germany conducted in 2016 revealed that although more than 70 % of the researchers are using DOIs for journal publications, less than 10% use DOIs for research data. To the question of why they are not using DOIs more than half (56%) answered that they don’t know about the option to use DOIs for other publications (datasets, conference papers etc.) Therefore it is not surprising that the majority (57 %) stated that they had no need for DOI counselling services. 40% of the questioned researchers need more information and almost 30% cannot see a benefit.
Publishers have been using PID systems for articles for years, and the DOI registration and citation are a natural part of the standard publication workflow. With the new digital age, the possibilities to publishing digital research objects beyond articles are bigger than ever – but the respective infrastructure providers are still struggling to provide integrated PID services.
Out of more than 1900 repository systems listed in re3data.org, only 702 (less than 37 %!) state to provide a PID service, with 444 of them using the DOI system. Infrastructure providers need to learn from publishers and offer integrated PID services, complementing existing workflows, using researcher’s vocabulary to support usability and promotion. Sell the benefit and enable researchers to focus on what they are best at: Do research (and not worry about the rest)!

Anticipation, Action, Awareness: A PID Communications Template for All
PIDs will only ever achieve their full power when they’re widely adopted and used by the research community. But engaging with researchers about the value of PIDs can be challenging. During 2017, we completely overhauled ORCID’s education and outreach resources, collating and updating five years’ worth of materials that had been developed organically and reactively into a single clear and consistent collection. We also created a three-phase communications toolkit:

building anticipation about ORCID
engagement with ORCID (action)
ongoing ORCID brand recognition, and reinforcing key messages (awareness)

The toolkit can be used out-of-the-box, or modified to suit local needs. Although it’s ORCID-specific, it can easily be adapted for other types of PID, since all materials are CC0-licensed and may be re-used and customized as required.

In this session we will showcase the toolkit elements, share feedback from organizations that have been using them, and brainstorm everyone’s ideas for developing a broader PID toolkit in future (incorporating suggestions from the PIDcurriculum session at the last PIDapalooza).

“A Research particle can only travel through a space created by its research information citizens” (1st Law of Research Data Mechanics)

In a research world where the descriptions of research objects including people, publications, grants, organisations and protocols are increasing enabled by persistent identifiers, multiple systems and institutions will have custodianship of a research records as they move through the research system. Persistent identifiers are not just technical, they are social. Yet for the most part, expectations and of how we should behave, and what we should do to our data for the benefit of other research citizens remains implicit at best. In November 2017, Digital Science (and anybody else that wants to join) will launch a twitter campaign designed to draw out community expectations of what research information citizenship is. This presentation will report back on the results of this campaign, and hopefully move us towards bringing research information citizenship out into the open.
