ORCID Releases RFI Re: Development of an Organization ID Open Registry
From the ORCID Blog:
Organization identifiers are a key part of the scholarly communications infrastructure. At the beginning of this year Crossref, DataCite and ORCID announced the formation of an Organization Identifier Working Group to refine the structure, principles, and technology specifications for an open, independent, non-profit organization identifier Registry to facilitate the disambiguation of researcher affiliations.
The working group has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit comment and interest from the broader research community in developing the Registry.
