IGSN IDs – All Sample Types, All Disciplines
December 8, 2022 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am UTC+0
In October 2021, DataCite and the International Generic Sample Number (IGSN) e.V. announced a partnership to foster worldwide adoption, implementation, and utilization of persistent identifiers for material samples. Under this partnership, DataCite is ensuring the ongoing sustainability of the IGSN ID infrastructure and is working with the IGSN e.V. to scale both IGSN IDs usage and sample community engagement and to develop sample identifier practice standards.
The Partnership announced in September 2022 that DataCite DOI services were launched for registering IGSN IDs, and are now available to all DataCite Members and Consortium Organizations. The partners are also establishing disciplinary Communities of Practice to inform how the DataCite Metadata Schema can better support material samples.
DataCite and IGSN e.V. invite you to a webinar, where we will showcase:
– The history of the IGSN ID and the future plans of the IGSN e.V.
– IGSN ID use cases and incorporation into samples workflows
– An exemplar Community of Practice for archaeological samples
– Recommendations & best practices for sample metadata, including a hands-on demonstration of descriptive metadata in DataCite services
This webinar is aimed at anyone with an interest in the collection management of material samples in the broadest sense. It is timed for the APAC and EMEA regions, with a similar webinar planned for the Americas (and EMEA) in 2023. The webinar will be presented in English and will last 60 minutes, including time for Q&A. The slides and recording will be shared afterward through the DataCite Zenodo Community and YouTube Channel, respectively.
