Beyond identifiers: metadata for decision making (& more)

Tuesday, 18 April 2023, 1pm-2pm UK time

Metadata and identifiers play an increasingly pivotal role in research. Being able to uniquely identify a work, person, organization or funder has always been important, but the relationships that can be established between these identifiers help build reliable and robust connections that mean we can:

  • Build out a richer picture of research
  • Give signals that support the integrity of that research
  • Enable reproducibility and reusability of research
  • Save time by reducing manual data entry and helping automate reporting workflows

So it’s no wonder that identifiers and metadata are being tied into funder and other policies.

In this EASE webinar, Helena Cousijn from DataCite, Paloma Marín-Arraiza from ORCID and Fabienne Michaud from Crossref explained the what, how and dug into the why of how identifiers and open, standardised, and machine-readable metadata help us achieve the aims above and what the implications are for editors, publishers and the wider research community.
