The impact of Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) is shown in a new study published in eLife by Babic and colleagues: Incidences of problematic cell lines are lower in papers that use RRIDs to identify cell lines. This study shows that the use of RRIDs in papers is associated with decreased use of misidentified or contaminated cell lines.
The Resource Identification Portal was created in support of the Resource Identification Initiative, which aims to promote research resource identification, discovery, and reuse. The portal offers a central location for obtaining and exploring Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) - persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource. At this webinar, Drs. Anita Bandrowski and Maryann Martone will talk about what are RRIDs good for and how do you use RRIDs.
