ROR is a community-led project (with CDL as one of the steering organizations) to develop an open, sustainable, usable, and unique identifier for every research organization in the world. The ROR project addresses a gap in the scholarly community ecosystem: the lack of open, stakeholder-governed-infrastructure for research organization identifiers and associated metadata that can uniquely identify research outputs with the institutions where research is produced. In short, we believe that institutions and libraries should not have to pay to access information about what and where their researchers are publishing. In this talk, I will describe the aims of ROR, discuss key use cases, present the work we have done so far to build the registry, share our plans for next steps, and solicit feedback from meeting participants about the long-term roadmap and data governance model.
