Launching DataCite’s Global Access Program in Asia: Improving Equity, Access, and PID Adoption

October 4, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm UTC+4

Asian countries are producing various research outputs and resources, such as datasets, dissertations, and protocols. These outputs are not getting the recognition and visibility they deserve. Adoption of persistent identifiers (PIDs) can improve the discoverability of these outputs and promote reusability by sharing them with the broader research community.

DataCite is a leading global nonprofit membership organization that provides PIDs for research data and other outputs and resources. We have introduced our Global Access Program (GAP) to improve equity, access, and adoption of PID infrastructure for communities in underrepresented countries, including the Asian countries with a special focus on South Asia and South-East Asia.

We are working with the community to raise awareness of PID benefits, the value of complete metadata, and the impact of registering various research resources. This webinar is part of our engagement activities in the region. Our aim is to partner with local organizations to help connect the research produced in the Asian region with the global research ecosystem through PID infrastructure.

Join us to learn about the following topics that can benefit researchers, librarians, repository managers, and policymakers:

  • DataCite’s GAP
  • Fostering PID adoption and Open Research Regulations
  • Importance of PIDs for researchers and institutions
  • Case study of data repository
