Science benefits from Persistent Identifiers


A letter in Nature describes the ways that DOIs and ORCiD IDs (and others, including DOIs for data, etc.) actually work to the benefit of both researchers and research products, "guiding us to information sources and showing connections between research and researchers. They can increase the visibility of a study, its origins and its impact, and indicate where it is hosted and who to ask for access. Contributors, peer reviewers and supporting materials can all be linked to the published article. ... they afford a wider understanding of the research landscape that does not compromise privacy or ‘ownership’ of the research itself — pertinent, for example, when the work is ongoing, personal or competitive."
