Over the past year Jisc has led a project examining the role 5 key persistent identifiers (PIDs) can play in the open access landscape. We present an overview of those PIDs along with a discussion of how embedding them within the wider open research workflows will have a positive impact on data and metadata, enabling the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles. The PIDs are: Works & Data (DOI), People (ORCID), Organisations (ROR), Funding (GrantID), Projects (RAiD)

Persistently identifying this information will protect the integrity of research data – ensuring correct attribution and accountability as well as enabling recognition of more contributions and roles for researchers allowing provenance to be established where lesser-known output is the basis for more established later "keystone" work. Increasing Effectiveness: By making it easier to share and re-use factual metadata, these PIDs can free up time to generate more value-additive qualitative, narrative and / or contextual information. Machine to machine processes decrease costs – effort, attention and financial
