A persistent identifier (PID) is a long-lasting reference to a digital resource. There is a growing need to uniquely identify instruments in many research communities. PIDs for instruments have many potential benefits:
- To enable unambiguous reference to digital representations of instruments
- To generate metrics that quantify the use of instruments and the rationale for future funding
- To link data to the instruments that generated them (provenance) to help with published papers and data tracking and citation
- To aid equipment logistics and mission planning
- To improve the discoverability and visibility of instruments and their data, published on the web
