Introduction to Persistent Identifiers (PIDs)
22 March 2024
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
This course is held in the Czech language.
Annotation: Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are the cornerstone of implementing the FAIR principles. Their effective use can significantly simplify the sharing of research results. This training will explain what persistent identifiers are, introduce their types, and explain their use at different research cycle stages. Support for implementing persistent identifiers at the national level in the Czech research, development and innovation environment will be presented. The lecturers will also focus more on introducing the ORCID iD researcher identifier and how it can be best used in a scientific career.
Benefit for participants: Participants will gain a basic understanding of the role of persistent identifiers in the science communication system. They will learn how the implementation of identifiers is supported in the Czech Republic. They will know how best to use the ORCID iD researcher identifier for their needs.
Prerequisites: interest in science and research communication
