PIDs for emerging uses [clear filter]

We are getting there: how RCUK is trying to link up Org IDs
Research Councils UK would welcome a discussion at PIDapalooza 2018 regarding the linking of organisational identifiers. Currently RCUK use a non-standard identifier in our internal systems for organisations. As we head into the formation of UK Research and Innovation (a UK organisation which brings together the 7 UK research councils, InnovateUK and a new organisation Research England), we have a growing requirement to record information from academic institutions to private sector companies and have an ambition to use a persistent identifier for these. We would like to discuss linking legal organisational (entity) identifiers e.g. companies house to other identifier standards like ISNI and beyond. This could potentially enable further interoperability in the sector reducing burden on academic staff applying for funding and admin burdens.

Making groups a first-class abstraction of PIDs
There's a lot of discussion about PIDs for groups right now, and different discussions include different ideas of groups. Some talk about groups of people, and some talk about groups of objects more generally.  We probably don't want to set up lots of new types of PIDs for each kind of group, but what else can we do?

In this session, we'll talk about making groups a first-class abstraction of PIDs. PIDs now have a single abstraction: that of a naming authority and a local namespace. Groups can be supported in PIDs today by using the relationType, but this is buried, not a high-level goal. If we had the concept of groups in PIDs, this would be useful in organization IDs (an organization is really a group, perhaps with a hierarchy), software IDs (software projects are groups of software releases), and data IDs (data collections and data sets are groups of data or data streams, and data streams are also groups of data).

Can we change the underlying assumptions about PIDs at this point?  Should we?  Let's talk, and figure it out.

PIDS in Practice: Peer Review
With Crossref’s late 2017 introduction of support for peer review reports and other review outputs, such as referee reports, decision letters, and author responses, PIDs - for people, places, and things - are now being used throughout the peer review process. This new functionality will is aimed at enabling better citation, recognition, and discoverability of peer reviews, as well as increasing transparency of the peer review process. This session will describe how PIDs have been integrated into the process for journal articles, highlight opportunities and challenges around adoption and use, and raise the question about what is needed for other forms of peer review, such as grant application, conference abstract submission, and annotation. We will present updated statistics on uptake of ORCID and Crossref’s peer review functionality and brainstorm ways to increase future adoption through community engagement and evangelization to researchers and their organizations.

RAiDs are like handles for projects
The DLCF Project in Brisbane Australia has developed a Research Activity ID for projects called RAiD. RAiD is a simple handle ID with an attached Data Management Record which holds minimal metadata for the project in the form of PIDs for workflows, tools, processes and people associated with the project. Integrated systems can use the RAiD and DMR content for automating access and allocations for storage and virtual tools while recording the access and outputs from their use. RAiD as a project PID removes the need for manual processes to access eResearch infrastructure and puts the research project at the centre of the Research Data Management process to improve line of sight through the entire data life cycle and its components.

Taken for granted: The first rule of grant IDs is that they should not be called “grant IDs.”
Research is supported in a variety of ways- through grants, endowments, secondments, loans use of premises/equipment and even crowd-funding. In any of these cases, it is important to be able to link researchers and research outputs to details about the sources of support. This is true for prosaic reasons- to understand ROI, to map the competitive landscape, to ensure that mandates are fulfilled, to avoid double payment. But it is also true for epistemic reasons- understanding how research was funded can help contextualise that research, and help expose potential conflicts of interest or specific agendas.

We already have the Open Funder Registry which at least provides a coarse mapping between research and funders, but it is becoming clear that we need more fine-grained mapping directly to information about the kind of support that was provided. Crossref is working with DataCite and ORCID to build off the work we did on the Open Funder Registry and create an interoperable PID that will map to information about how funders support specific research. This talk will describe what we’ve learned so-far and how we plan to proceed. Hint- don’t call them “grant IDs.”

Rethinking PID registration
In this session, I will propose a new workflow for PID registration that does not involve any API calls or web form submissions by the registering party. DOIs for science blogs are used as an example and good fit for this new workflow. We will have a working prototype by February and invite interested parties to bring their science blog for DOI-fication to the beta test we will then start.

Citations as First Class data objects - Citation Identifiers
Citations as First Class Data Entities, and Open CItation Identifiers

Citations, the conceptual directional links between citing and cited papers created by the inclusion of a reference in the reference list of the citing paper, are key elements in the scholarly landscape.  It is important to discuss citations now, because the Initiative for Open has persuaded almost all the major scholarly publishers to open the reference lists they submit to Crossref, so that Crossref now has about half a billion open references.

Citations need to be treated as first class data entities, so that they can be more readily described, distinguished, counted, processed and analysed.  I will present methods of permitting citations to be treated as first class data objects, that include:

     being definable in a machine-readable manner – requiring ontology modifications;

     being storable, searchable and retrievable – requiring a well-structured open database;

     being identifiable – requiring a new a global Persistent Identifier; and

    having a Web-based resolution service that takes the identifier as input and returns a description of the citation.

PID for PAP (pre-analysis plans)
Faced with well-known issues in the reporting of empirical studies such as “p-hacking” and the file-drawer problem, authors increasingly bolster the credibility of their finding by preregistering their studies and or providing pre-analysis plans (PAP). Several venues for pre-registration already exists (clinicaltrials.gov for medical studies, EGAP for political science, the AEA RCT registry for economics, and OSF across disciplines). Metadata standards for preregistration are barely existing. There is no way to systematically associate a preregistration with a published article or to easily query existing preregistrations for a given author. We develop a blueprint for a PID-based system that allows for the systematic citation of study preregistrations, as well as the linkage of preregistration to other digital objects (data, article) as well as researchers. We explore to what extent the existing DOI infrastructure can already accomplish this and where changes are needed.

Uniquely identifying organisations and people in anti-corruption contexts
This session will explore learning (and questions) from a number of open data for accountability projects. (1) The org-id.guide project is creating a collaborative 'register of registers' or organization identifiers, in order to improve the quality of open data about companies, government agencies and charities. (2) The Open Contracting Data Standard describes the need for contracting process identifiers, to tie together all the stages of government procurement and spending. (3) The Beneficial Ownership Data Standard project seeks to capture information on the links between companies and people, finding a global approach to identifying individuals, whilst respecting privacy, cultural and political differences.

PIDs for policy...yeah, like, putting IDs on individual elements within policies...cool, right?
Policies are a common way to structure interactions amongst humans as well as between humans and human-made systems. In turn, they have a structure to themselves, which may vary considerably across use cases but can generally be broken down into individual policy elements. In this session - which will be presented from https://github.com/Daniel-Mietchen/events/blob/master/PIDapalooza-2018.md - we will entertain the idea of assigning PIDs to such policy elements and explore the effects that might have on exposing policies relevant to a given context, flagging contradictions between policies, building policy-aware workflows, monitoring policy compliance, and standardizing policies across languages, jurisdictions and other use cases.

PID-U-Like
The use of PIDs for journal articles, books, datasets, people and funders is now commonplace within publishing workflows and there are other initiatives underway such as grants, software and organizations. However, there are many entities that could be usefully associated with a PID and machine actionable metadata outside of these categorisations. Examples include a PID for work performed by someone at an institution (i.e. an employment record or study credit), a PID for a qualification gained at an institution (i.e. a degree or professional qualification record), or a PID for a research infrastructure facility, such as a high powered laser or research vessel. The potential use cases for PIDs are almost endless. We propose an on-demand service that enables PIDs to be created on demand, associated with domain appropriate metadata and persisted. This presentation will cover the issue, describe a flexible and metadata agnostic solution, demo a working prototype, and discuss how the community can make a Persisted and Identified Metadata as a Service (PIMaaS) service a reality.
