Ringgold’s Data Manager on standard identifiers and the benefits to scholarly publishers.

Ringgold’s Data Manager was in London on Wednesday 11 November 2015 at the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers seminar on standard identifiers, metrics and processes in journal publishing, discussing how they can help scholarly publishers.

The use of institutional identifiers is becoming ever more important as the challenge of uniquely identifying organisations within an increasingly complex supply chain grows. As the CASRAI report identified there are already a number of identifiers available, with each offering differing attributes. The session looked at the increasing importance of these institutional identifiers, how they are used and the benefits they can provide, and why a simple question such as ‘which institution are we referring to?’ may not be as easy to answer as it first appears.
