In this webinar research data management specialist Siobhann McCafferty from the Australian Research Data Commons will explore metadata and persistent identifiers.

We will also look in particular at Orcid for people, DOI for data, publications and software, RAiD for projects, IGSN for physical samples and Handle for working data.
