Persistent identifiers for organizations
Persistent identifiers (PIDs) for organizations are useful to get an overview of the publication output of an organization and track the influence of affiliations.
Crossref, DataCite and California Digital Library and Digital Science joined forces to create the Research Organization Registry (ROR). ROR was launched in January 2019 to meet the particular need of identifying affiliations on researchers’ publications. It is the default identifier supported in Crossref DOI metadata, DataCite DOI metadata, and ORCID. ROR consolidates other identifiers currently in use (e.g. GRID, ISNI, Crossref Funder ID, Wikidata) at a coarser granularity.

ISNI currently provides identifiers for over 700,000 organizations in its registry. The ISNI IDs are maintained in a single database which is curated by a network of members and registration agencies.
