The network of producers and users of authority data
An authority data production network
In 2020, 180 institutions are contributing to the production of authority data for the higher education and research community. Once identified and authenticated, professional users have at their disposal the WinIBW cataloguing interface and/or the cataloguing interface ofIdRef. These are mainly :
- cataloguers from the Sudocand Sudoc PS networks
- of the network's cataloguers Calames
- cataloguers of the Theses network
- cataloguers of the Perseus digital library
- cataloguers of theOATAO institutional archive
A network of advanced users and partners
As an open database exposed under a free license, not all users of IdRef data are known toAbes. However, some users become partners ofIdRef: without producing data in IdRef, they make systematic use of it, usually to identify people and/or link them to their own data. In order to carry out these identification tasks,Abes regularly provides alignments of identifiers, as for example at :
- ScanR, the search and exploration engine of the research and innovation landscape in France
- HAL, CCSD Open Archive
- several HAL portals: INALCO, Université Polytechnique des Hauts de France, Normandie...
- several institutional archives: CIRAD Agritrop, Toulouse Capitole Publications
- Univ-Droit, university law portal
- the catalogue of publications of the French Institute of Oriental Archaeology in Cairo
In addition, some partner institutions are implementing mechanisms to integrateIdRef into their own cataloguing environment in order to link their data to IdRef in the process. Among the tools interconnected with IdRef are the following:
- UnivAOK, institutional archive of Alsatian institutions
- Didόmena, EHESS research data warehouse via the Vivo software brick
- OpenThéso, a multilingual and multi-hierarchical thesaurus manager used by FRANTIQ
- the Metopes (Methods and Tools for Structured Publishing) research infrastructure
The ORCID France consortium
Since November 2019, theAbes, in relation with Couperin, coordinates the ORCID France consortium.
By encouraging documentation professionals to promote the international identifier ORCID to researchers and doctoral students in their institutions, the aim is to increase their international visibility as contributors and authors of scientific publications.
In 2022, 46 institutions are participating in the ORCID France consortium.
- See the list of member institutions on the ORCID France website
Note: following algorithmic processing, the ORCID identifiers are aligned with the IdRef identifier as well as with the main identifiers used in the ESR documentary ecosystem. The result of this processing is visible in IdRef.fr, example: https: //www.idref.fr/1397537531
