ROR Statement of Support
The scholarly research community depends on a network of open identifier and metadata infrastructure. Content identifiers and contributor identifiers are foundational components of this network. But an additional component has been missing—there has been no open, stakeholder-governed infrastructure for research organization identifiers and their associated metadata.
This is the motivation behind the Research Organization Registry (ROR), a community-led project to develop an open, sustainable, usable, and unique identifier for every research organization in the world. The ROR MVR (minimum viable registry) launched in January 2019 and began assigning unique ROR IDs to more than 91,000 organizations.
ROR is intended for use by the research community, for the purposes of increasing the use of organization identifiers in the community and enabling connections between organization records in various systems. Implementation of ROR IDs in scholarly infrastructure and metadata will enable more efficient discovery and tracking of research outputs across institutions and funding bodies.
The community-based aspect of ROR sets it apart from similar efforts in this space. Wide adoption and support across the scholarly research community is central to ROR’s growth, sustainability, and success.
We are the ROR Community
We are research organizations, librarians, platform providers, metadata services, publishers, funders, and more.
We support the ROR identifier and its future and we pledge to adopt and use ROR in our applications, tools, workflows, and communications.
