Hey, we didn’t publish that! Unresolving PIDs in the wild and how to catch them

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One of the key functions of PIDs is to make links to resources permanent and reliable. PIDs, and particularly DOIs, that do not resolve are therefore individually a nuisance and collectively a significant issue for the PID ecosystem as they undermine trust in its reliability.

We will describe how the Qualitative Data Repository, QDR, has found examples of links to datasets on its site, both as URLs and as DOIs on multiple occasions, We will discuss two automated monitoring strategies that we have implemented in reaction to these discoveries: One based on Datacite’s automated reports, the other based on our own server logs.

We will invite the audience to describe their own experience both with encountering broken PIDs and their efforts to fix and prevent them and catalog some most common causes and brainstorm fixes. Finally, while we are talking about broken PIDs, we will lead all participants in a chant of “Shame, JSTOR, Shame” for their continued publication of broken DOIs (see https://twitter.com/adam42smith/status/1299503139767414786 ).
