ORCID hosts webinars, events, and meetings to provide updates on ORCID and to explore topics of interest to the community. We will be moving over our history of events through January 2021, and in the meantime, access the 2020 events here.
Visualizing COVID-19 Research Graph Using ORCID
May 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm AEST
Due to the global pandemic, the focus of most researchers around the world has changed to COVID-19 impact and recovery. In our work, we leverage the power of ORCID and other persistent identifiers to form a connected graph of scholarly communications to understand how organizations and countries are collaborating towards finding a pathway to COVID-19 recovery.
Persistent identifiers (PIDs) allow us to link different entities like people, organizations, datasets, and publications by precisely identifying the participants within a research project. PIDs enable research provenance and attribution by accurately linking research entities.
We leverage the interconnectedness of different identifiers to report on the formation of a collaboration network that captures connections between researchers, research datasets, publications, and grants. Using this newly formed collaboration network, we demonstrate how COVID-19 research collaboration has formed since late 2019.
Join us as we discuss how persistent identifiers–when implemented and used within the research ecosystem–can be applied to understand real world scenarios.
