I only became aware of ROR at this year’s PIDapalooza! So please forgive me for this “stupid question”.
I looked up the organization where I work as Library and Publications Manager, IUCN, in the ROR Registry and found 5 entries (Research Organization Registry (ROR) Search). We are an international organization, so we have offices all over the world. It seems four of the five entries are for our country offices.
What is the ROR guidance on this? I see that “research organization” is defined as “any organization that conducts, produces, manages, or touches research.” But how should this work for an international organization with offices in various locations? Is it considered “one” organization or is each office a distinct one? Should “organization” correlate with a “legal entity”? (It could be that some of the country offices with a ROR are distinct legal entities, I’m not sure!)
Finally, I see that there is a curation form where one can request a change or update (ROR). But can those changes be initiated by anyone, or does it need to be someone (can it be anyone?) from the organization in question?
