Research needs visibility and persistence in order to be found, cited and re-used. Registering persistent identifiers (PIDs) for research outputs supports this. A PID such as a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) helps researchers to increase the visibility and impact of their publications, research data, and other research outputs. This webinar, organized by AfLIA and DataCite, gives an overview of the value that PIDs provide, how researchers can start using PIDs and how organizations can register DOIs for different research outputs. In addition to speakers from DataCite, representatives from the UbuntuNet Alliance and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) will share their experiences of being a DataCite member.
