With the steady increase in research outputs, and the increasing number of active researchers from both academia and industry, research stakeholders find they need to be able to automate workflows in order to scale their systems efficiently. Funders want to be able to track the outputs that arise from research they have funded. As a result, institutions find themselves having to regularly analyze and summarize the research their faculty produce. Faculty, in turn, are facing increasing accounting bureaucracy in order to meet all the reporting requirements that are cascading through the system. And finally, publishers are seeking to make the manuscript submission and evaluation process more efficient as well as to increase the discoverability and richness of their publications. The key to scaling these activities is to take advantage of the open identifier and metadata infrastructures that have been developed by the industry. This talk will explore existing and emerging industry initiatives to develop open, robust, international and interdisciplinary identifier systems to help manage the increasing reporting requirements of the academia.
