New publication on the potential of the PID Graph

18 January 2021

On 8 January 2021, the article “Connected Research: The Potential of the PID Graph” was published in the open access journal Patterns (Cell Press). DANS staff members Ricarda Braukmann and René van Horik were co-authors of the article.

The article describes the possibilities of the PID Graph, i.e., the connection and linking of different Persistent Identifiers (PIDs).  PIDs are permanent references to digital objects and play an important role in making research FAIR. By connecting PIDs to each other, information can be linked. This offers new possibilities for research and access to information. The FREYA project, in which DANS also participated, worked on this.

Ricarda Braukmann and René van Horik contributed to the article on behalf of DANS. They did this together with DataCite, EMBL-EBI, Crossref, NISO and STFC. In the article, three recommendations are given for various target groups on how they can increase the use of PIDs and the added value of PID Graph.
