In this session, attendees will learn the fundamentals of persistent identifiers (PIDs) for sharing research and scholarship. Panelists will discuss their experiences with DOIs (digital object identifiers) and ORCID iDs, a persistent identifier for researchers—what they are used for, where they are typically used, when they are required, and why they are essential for trust and reproducibility in research.
