ESIP Member RORs

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners

ESIP is currently made up of ~140 members, mostly organizations that are involved in various aspects of the global Earth and Space Science research enterprise. Identifying these organizations consistently and persistently is an important step towards connecting them into the growing body of Earth Science scholarly communication and knowledge. An initial step towards this goal is to search for organizational identifiers using the affiliations in the ESIP membership list as input. The results of such a search carried out during December 2019 are described here.

The Tables included here have the following columns:

  1. ESIP Affiliation - the affiliation input, in this case from the ESIP Member List.
  2. ROR - the identifier for the organization found in the input affiliation using several strategies.
  3. Organization Name - the name of the organization from the ROR
  4. Country - the country of the organization from the ROR
  5. Warning - a warning identified in the discovery process that indicates the ROR should be checked by hand. These occur when multiple organizations have the same name or when an acronym in the affiliation is used to make the match. RORs with warnings should be checked and additional information may be required to ensure that the correct ROR has been identified.
  6. Comment - other information about the match

The results shown here are have not been "cleaned-up" in order to help ESIP members become familiar with common challenges encountered during ROR searches.

ESIP Affiliations With One ROR

The best case scenario is the affiliation string returning a single ROR returned using multiple search strategies. These RORs are generally correct, but there are some that need to be checked, some that are suspicious, and some that are wrong.

ESIP Affiliations With Multiple RORs

In some cases multiple RORs are identified in the search. In some cases, this reflects multiple organization names in the affiliation string, many times at different levels in the overall organization. In other cases it reflects ambiguity in the affiliation that needs additional information to be resolved.

In some cases, a lookup table developed as part of a ROR discovery and curation process is used during the ROR search. This lookup table includes a-priori knowledge developed during prior experience or ROR searches. For example, searching for WRAP: Wildfire Research and Applications Partnership yields no matches but a google search identifies a research partnership at NASA Ames Research Center.

ESIP Affiliations Without RORs

The Research Organization Registry is a community-led project that aims to develop an open, sustainable, usable, and unique identifier for every research organization in the world. The current version of the registry is based on GRIDs donated to the effort by Digital Science. This registry will grow based on input from the community. Until the ROR community takes over curation and management of the Registry, the contents will continue to be the GRID data. New organizations can be suggested through the GRID website.
