In our next Bibliometrics and Research Impact Canadian Community of Practice session, John Aspler, Manager of the Canadian Persistent Identifier (PID) Community at the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, will:
- Describe research PIDs such as ORCiD and DOIs and discuss the problems they solve.
- Review the current national landscape of PIDs for Canadian research and the work being done to build a national strategy.
- And discuss the important role of PIDs in the assessment of research.
Following John’s talk, there will be a facilitated discussion on the barriers and facilitators around supporting PIDS in our research impact work. While this month’s discussion will be primarily in English, John is bilingual and can take and respond to questions in French and English.
