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 organisations and countries are collaborating towards finding a pathway to COVID-19 recovery.

Persistent identifiers (PIDs) allow us to link different entities like people, organisations, datasets and publications by precisely identifying the participants within a research project. PIDs enable research provenance and attribution by accurately linking research entities. Our work uses persistent identifiers like ORCID IDs, DoI’s and org ids (organisational identifiers) to establish connections such as

We leverage the interconnectedness of these 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.

Our work is an example of how persistent identifiers when implemented and used within the research ecosystem can be applied to understand real world scenarios.
