About one year ago, Crossref, DataCite and ORCID announced a joint initiative to launch and sustain an open, independent, non-profit organization identifier registry to facilitate the disambiguation of researcher affiliations. Today we publish governance recommendations and product principles and requirements for the creation of an open organization identifier registry and invite community feedback.

At the end of October 2016, Crossref, DataCite, and ORCID reported on collaboration in the area of organization identifiers. We issued three papers for community comment and after input we subsequently announced the formation of The OI Project, along with a call for expressions of interest from people interested in serving on the working group.

It is a natural fit for ORCID to be involved in conversations about organization identifiers. We are a major stakeholder in this space. Working jointly with Crossref and DataCite, we have developed a set of working papers and now call for a Working Group to move an effort forward to stand up a community-based organization identifier registry. These papers will be open for feedback until mid-November after which a Working Group will be established to take on responsibility for the project.
