Persistent Identifiers Towards Open Science in Japan (and the Asia–Pacific Region)
December 12 @ 10:00 am – 5:30 pm JST
This event has the theme ‘As local as necessary, as international as possible’. It will focus on strengthening the Japanese persistent identifier (PID) community and fostering linkages between Japan PID infrastructure and the wider community in the Asia–Pacific (APAC) region and globally. Participants will leave with increased knowledge of PIDs, how their organizations can work with ORCID and DataCite through our Consortia in Japan, and about different research community PID initiatives.
The agenda will provide an orientation of PIDs and related services, as well as insights about ORCID and DataCite in the APAC region and the activities of our Consortia. You will also learn about use cases of PID implementation in research workflows in Japan (and APAC), and how implementation has aligned with organizational goals: showcasing success stories and challenges.
Bringing people together for conversations that are not possible virtually, the event is an opportunity to meet for anyone with an interest in the adoption of PIDs and Open Science principles. There will be plenty of time for having stimulating discussions around points of interest to the community. Join us to network and share perspectives with the hosting organizations, your peers, and representatives from the APAC region.
This event is co-hosted by ORCID and DataCite alongside the Academic eXchange for Information Environment and Strategy and the Japan Link Center, who respectively lead ORCID’s and DataCite’s Consortia in Japan. It is supported by the Japan Science and Technology Agency. The event is co-located with the International Symposium on Data Science 2023 held on 11–15 December 2023 at the Science Council of Japan (SCJ) in Tokyo, organized by the Joint Support-Center for Data Science Research of the Research Organization of Information and Systems and the SCJ’s Committee of International Collaborations on Data Science.
