ABOUT WEBINAR

Research activities rely on access and repeatability of results. Accurate identification of the subject of the research as well as of the techniques and methods used is critical to obtain reliable results.
The adoption of Permanent Unique Identifiers, and specifically Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) promotes access and reusability of data in modern research. The webinar begins with some basic concepts on Permanent Unique Identifiers. Next, DOIs are introduced describing how they are managed, how they can be obtained and how their features can be of benefit to researchers in a wide range of fields.

ABOUT SPEAKER

Marco Marsella is Senior Advisor for Global Information System of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture at FAO where he contributes to the design of the system and the promotion of DOIs in the Plant Genetic Resources community. His background is on Information Technology and he’s particularly interested in system integration and communication formats and protocols. Marco Marsella is also a member of the DataCite Board.

We look forward to your participation in this webinar soon!
