Join us in Zurich for "Persistent Identifiers in Research"

Persistent identifiers in research

Event to mark ten years of ETH Zurich’s DOI Desk on Friday, 13 September 2019

To celebtrate its 10th anniversary, ETH Zurich’s DOI Desk invites you to attend a one-day event on the topic of “Persistent Identifiers in Research”. Persistent identifiers (PID) play an instrumental role in guaranteeing the traceability of digital objects from academia and research on the internet. For a number of years, PIDs have become increasingly important in academia. The main reasons for this are the changes in academic publishing that go hand in hand with digitalisation and the need to enable referenced works to be found in the long term and linked to each other.

As a result, we are delighted to welcome speakers who will shed light on this current topic from different perspectives on Friday, 13 September 2019. The presentations will focus on current applications for persistent identifiers in research and new ideas, developments and initiatives for the future – either from a provider perspective such as DataCite and ORCID or in ongoing projects. We will also offer an outlook by examining the possibilities that the use of block chain technologies offer in this field.

The event, which will be held in English, is not only aimed at PID providers, but also users and anyone else interested in the topic
