Making the connection: How organizations are institutionalizing the use of persistent identifiers to link data, publications, people, and institutions

Persistent identifiers are powerful tools that allow us to unambiguously link objects and information. We now have a number of different systems of persistent identifiers for data, publications, people and institutions. The question is how are organizations taking advantage of these persistent identifiers to create meaningful links? How are institutions encouraging or enforcing the use of persistent identifiers? For example, how are organizations institutionalizing the use of ORCIDs or ResearchIDs among their staff and how are they ensuring that those identifiers are linked to an author's publications and datasets? How are organizations ensuring that there are links between publications and datasets? What types of changes both technological and cultural need to happen in order to fully connect all of the parts and pieces of our science to tell a meaningful, accurate, and persistent story? This session will feature a few successes and challenges from organizations that have made these connections and how they did it, as well as a discussion of how others can initiate the implementation of persistent identifiers.
