Digital Persistent Identifier (DPI) Workshop Series

Subject Matter

In January 2022, the Federal government released the “Guidance for Implementing National Security Presidential Memorandum 33 (NSPM-33) on National Security Strategy for United States Government-Supported Research and Development”. The guidance requires a certification from research institutions awarded more than $50 million per year total in Federal research funding confirming they have implemented a research security program meeting the requirements. Specifically, the guidance requires within 1 year of the date of the memorandum, “funding agencies shall establish policies regarding requirements or individual researchers supported by or working on any Federal research grant to be registered with a service that provides a digital persistent identifier (DPI) for that individual”. NSPM-33 gives DPI implementation guidance stating that DPIs should be integrated wherever possible.

Additionally, NIH also released plans for a new Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy that will take effect January 25, 2023. The new policy is an update to the current NIH 2003 Data Sharing Policy which came into effect on October 1, 2003 and will end with the implementation of the DMS Policy in 2023.

Goals and Objectives of the Workshops

This workshop, hosted by Research Compliance, will focus on the digital persistent identifier platform, ORCID, including its benefits to PIs, and give an overview of the Data Management and Sharing Policy. While ORCID has not been named the required digital persistent identifier, it meets all the requirements as stated in the guidance and is the platform the university has registered with. DPIs and the DMS Plan will play a large role in the future for faculty conducting research at the university.
