PEARC20 has ended
Welcome to PEARC20!
PEARC20’s theme is “Catch the Wave.” This year’s theme embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay on pace and in front of all the new waves in technology, analytics, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. We look forward to this year’s PEARC20 virtual meeting, where we can share scientific discovery and craft the future infrastructure.

The conference will be held in Pacific Time (PT) and the times listed below are in Pacific Time.

The connection information for all PEARC20 workshops, tutorials, plenaries, track presentations, BOFs, Posters, Visualization Showcase, and other affiliated events, are in the PEARC20 virtual conference platform, Brella. If you have issues joining Brella, please email pearcinfo@googlegroups.com.

An Open Ecosystem for Pervasive Use of Persistent Identifiers

Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are essential for making data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable, or FAIR. While the advantages of PIDs for data publication and citation are well understood, and Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) for data are increasingly widely used, there are two gaps in the current identifier ecosystem: 1) a single interface that provides a consistent baseline of capabilities encompassing key aspects of the research data lifecycle, including canonical landing pages and machine-readable metadata via the same URL; and 2) support for identifiers for more ephemeral data, particularly as data move across system boundaries, such as during workflows. To address these gaps, we have implemented, and made freely available as open source software, the FAIR Research Identifiers broker service. This service supports multiple identifier providers (ARK, Handle, DOI via DataCite, etc.) and uses Globus Auth to authorize identifier creation for a given provider and account. This paper provides a summary of the current identifier ecosystem, presents recommendations for identifier users, and describes our FAIR Research Identifiers service.
