ODIN – ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network - is a two-year project which started in September 2012, funded by the European Commission’s ‘Coordination and Support Action’ under the FP7 programme.

Partners in ODIN are innovators in science, information science and the publishing industry : CERN, the British Library, ORCID, DataCite, Dryad, arXiv and the Australian National Data Service.

The mission


ODIN aims to build on the success of DataCite and ORCID by designing an ‘awareness layer’ for persistent author and object identifiers, thereby reducing technical, cultural and logistical barriers to the accessibility, attribution and trust of data. Identifier awareness will make it possible to stabilise : (1) References to a data object ; (2) tracking of use and re-­use ; (3) Links between a data object, subsets, articles, rights statements and every person involved in its life-­cycle (creator, editor, reviewer, aggregator, etc.).
