The ARDC is pleased to announce the release of a National Persistent Identifier (PID) Roadmap website to support the implementation of the 2024 Australian National Persistent Identifier (PID) Strategy, launched in February this year by the ARDC. 

The Strategy is a coordinated, comprehensive and collaborative approach to accelerate Australian research and innovation through the universal use of connected Persistent Identifiers (PIDs). Guided by a National PID Strategy Taskforce of key sector stakeholders, the Strategy was developed through extensive consultation with the research sector, including national workshops, working groups, webinars and an open call for individual and group submissions.

Implementing the National PID Strategy

The implementation of the National PID Strategy is being supported through the new National PID Strategy Roadmap website. The website contains information that will assist the sector in implementing the Strategy, including guidance on ‘priority PIDs’ and principles, a template to create a Stakeholder Action Plan and examples of these, and the beginnings of a National Collaborative Roadmap that stitches these Plans together. A Strategic Advisory Group has been formed to guide the process and comprises senior stakeholders from the Australian research sector.

Roadmap development will be accelerated through Stakeholder Action Groups that will develop and collaborate on capability maturity models and action plans that advance the PIDs Strategy. 

Express Your Interest in Joining a Stakeholder Action Group

Stakeholder Action Groups are being formed to enable the National PID Strategy and contribute to the National PID Roadmap. The Groups will facilitate discussion and alignment in implementing PIDs among stakeholders with similar interests and produce shared outputs including:

  1. Capability Maturity Model tailored for the Stakeholder Group, underpinned by case studies and use cases
  2. Collective Stakeholder Action Plan contributed to the National PIDs Roadmap
  3. Guidance for stakeholder implementation including a set of recommendations
  4. Identification of potential collaborative projects to advance the collective action plan
  5. Contribution to the gathering of baseline statistics to measure success.

The first set of Stakeholder Action Groups will be:

  1. funders
  2. institutions
  3. NCRIS facilities
