Abstract: “Adopting ORCID to Maximize Impact of Research Contributions”
Abstract: 'In this work we would like to build avenues of collaboration with and between Arab speaking region NRENs, researchers and research institutions, to implement FAIR principles best practices and to align with the UNESCO recommendations for Open Science, to also link in persistent identifiers with the wider trust & identity mission.
During the last 10 years ORCID as a persistent identifier, demonstrated significant improvement in researcher identification and discoverability as well as connecting systems and contributions around the world. We aim to invite all research contributors and research institutions to participate in building communities of practices within the ASREN network. That would be a great insight for those looking to draw Open Research roadmaps, and drive adoption and best practice use of the different APIs, Open Access systems and interoperable registries.'
