PIDs for Developers The landscape of persistent identifiers, PIDs has expanded considerably in the last years and the information you need to start integrating persistent identifiers depends on your use cases. Some services will be concerned with creating DOIs while others simply need to query the metadata. Likewise, some systems may require authenticated ORCID IDs to aid interoperability, others will want to retrieve metadata or update records. New PID infrastructures open up opportunities for new functionalities and graphing new connections. We have collected here some features for developers that aim to integrate or build on current and new PID infrastructures and their extended services. PIDs for Researchers PIDs for Funders and Policy Makers PIDs for Publishers PIDs for Librarians and Repository Managers Persistent identifiers (PIDs) have become an important part of the research workflow. Funders expect entities within the academic world to be associated with PIDs, institutions are looking at PIDs to be able to track all people and outputs from their institution, and researchers want PIDs so that they can get credit for their work.
