Subject: [IP-OA_Forum] Webinar reminder: Publishing Workflows in a PID-optimised future ( A joint OASPA/Jisc webinar - January 25)
This is a reminder that you may wish to register for the first in a series of Jisc hosted online events in early 2023 which will present four workflows, each of which is intended to showcase a possible future, in which persistent identifiers (PIDs) are used throughout the research lifecycle to enable automation, efficiency, new discovery tools, and analysis. Each webinar will be run in collaboration with a relevant organisation (OASPA, ARMA, UKRI, and ARDC) and focus on one of the following workflows:
International Research Management
These workflows offer a vision of a PID-optimised future, created with the goal to inspire all those working to support research and innovation to consider how they could use powerful, global, open research information infrastructures in new ways to improve the health and resilience of the ecosystem
This first online event on January 25 will be run in partnership with OASPA and will raise awareness of the workflows, in particular the publishing workflow, and demonstrate the value of PID implementations to publishers as well as the costs of not implementing them.
The webinar will be introduced by Christopher Brown (Jisc). Josh Brown (MoreBrains) will then offer an overview of the workflows project and its outputs. Catriona MacCallum (Hindawi) will outline why publishers should care about implementing PIDs before Yvonne Campfens (OA Switchboard) introduces PIDs in practice for publishers with a panel of three publishers that have successfully implemented PIDs with each zooming in on one specific area of the publishing workflow. the mini panel features Johannes Wagner (Copernicus Publications), Lyubomir Penev (Pensoft) and Rob O’Donnell and Miquel Peralta (Rockefeller University Press).
