Information Access Seminar

The Research Organization Registry

Friday, March 3, 2023
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm

Maria Gould

The Research Organization Registry (ROR) is an initiative developed and co-led by California Digital Library to provide an open solution to the problem of identifying affiliations in research outputs and tracking research outputs at the institutional level. The ROR registry provides unique identifiers and metadata records for 100,000+ research organizations around the world. ROR is being integrated in research systems and workflows to collect clean affiliation data and make this data openly available to support discovery and tracking of outputs by institutions.

This session will provide an overview of what ROR is, present examples of how and where ROR IDs are being integrated, and discuss how libraries and research institutions can benefit from the open data that ROR provides.

This seminar will be held both online & in person. You are welcome to join us either in South Hall or via Zoom.
