Where can I find an overview of all active PIDs?

Dear PID-Community,
is there an overview or list of all active PIDs - means PIDs, that are in usage actually? From PIDs for online ressources, to physical objects to research instruments or infrastructures?

This is really helpful - thank you!

An important category of research entity emerging since that report was written is the FAIR Digital Object (FAIR-DO), which will be an important element in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

A Digital Specimen is a specific example of a FAIR-DO. DiSSCo, the Distributed System of Scientific Collections will most likely use a ‘powered by DOI®’ scheme for identifying these.

As some additional background material, Robert Huber (MARUM) and I published a paper a while ago where we did a survey of the actual use of PID systems among research data infrastructures.

The paper is part of a Data Science Journal Special Collection " 20 Years of Persistent Identifiers: Applications and Future Directions" https://datascience.codata.org/collections/special/20-years-of-persistent-identifiers-applications-and-future-directions/
