PIDs quickly have become a crucial hinge in our scholarly communications infrastructure, enabling trusted connections between people, places, and objects in networked digital space. But what level of trust do we--and should we--have in the PID providers and hosts upon whom scholarly communications now increasingly depends? Drawing on recent Educopia research on data ethics, data trusts, business modeling, and values and principles assessment, this session will consider how PID providers might build transparency and accountability into their governance structures and business models to help ensure the ways they create, collect, store, share, analyze, and report on identifiers aligns with academic values and principles.
