Welcome to the PID Forum, the global information and discussion platform for all things PID-related. The PID Forum aims to bring together the various communities working with persistent identifiers in the research world. It’s a virtual place to share best practices, announce events, ask questions, have discussions, and more.
The idea for a discussion platform about PIDs that is open to everyone arose in project FREYA, a collaboration between 12 organisations, including PID service providers (ORCID, DataCite, Crossref), research organisations (CERN, EBI-EMBL, STFC), libraries (British Library), data centres (Pangaea, DANS, ARDC) and publishers (PLOS, Hindawi). The FREYA project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 777523. During FREYA we will work on developing the forum together with the wider community.
