Persistent Identification of Instruments
Instruments play an essential role in creating research data but they are often only identified in the scientific literature using free text. Through the use of globally unique, persistent identifiers (PIDs), it is now common practice to establish traceable links between research assets. This webinar introduces the Outputs of the RDA Persistent Identification of Instruments Working Group. Of particular focus are the metadata schema for persistent identification of instruments and the proposed solutions for publishing PIDs for instruments at established PID providers. Participants will learn of numerous infrastructures that have adopted the PIDINST Schema as well as B2INST as an EUDAT prototype service for low-barrier registration and persistent identification of instruments.
This webinar is designed for instrument database providers, instrument manufacturers, research infrastructures, and researchers.
