Launch of the Initial Persistent Identifier Policy for the EOSC
Representatives from the EOSC FAIR and EOSC Architecture Working Groups have developed a draft policy on persistent identifiers (PIDs) for the European Open Science Cloud, which has been publicly released for community feedback and comment.
The draft provides an outline of what is meant by ‘persistent identifier’ and what the key features of PIDs are that must be present in order to support FAIR research across EOSC. Organisations are encouraged to review the draft policy and provide a written response.
A second draft will then be developed by March 2020. After gathering further community feedback, a final draft will be released and handed over to the EOSC Executive Board in October 2020.
