RAiD Research Activity Identifier Service
What is a Research Activity Identifier (RAiD)?
A RAiD is a unique and persistent identifier (PID) for research projects. It records the PIDs of related research activities for a particular project in its metadata envelope, such as:
- ORCIDs for people
- DOIs for data and publications
- RORs for institutions.
About Our RAiD Service
The ARDC’s RAiD service is free and can be used by any research organisation, lab, institution or agency.
The service facilitates the minting of RAiDs for research activity and helps integrate the ARDC RAiD API into research platforms. It can be used to assign RAiDs to any research project or activity.
Before using the production service, users are required to assign the RAiD user agreement.
