What are the benefits of integrating PIDs in publishers workflows?

There are many benefits of integrating PIDs into publisher workflows. These include:

  • Creating persistent links to content so that researchers reading a work can always find it and link to related works, even if the content moves.
  • Capacity to participate in shared services such as [Event Data].(https://www.datacite.org/eventdata.html) and Cited-by linking.
  • Ability to streamline researcher workflows eg. via ORCID Auto-update.
  • Adding funding information to help organisations identify the outputs of the research they funded.
