Crossref has announced a long-term plan to deprecate the Open Funder Registry and merge it with ROR in order to make workflows more efficient for all concerned.
Europe PMC, one of the largest providers of high-performance search tools for life sciences literature, has announced that its Grant Finder now incorporates Research Organization Registry (ROR) IDs to help users find active and completed grants awarded by Europe PMC funders.
ROR is excited to welcome two new members to its Steering Group this year: Joy Owango from the Training Centre in Communication (TCC Africa) and Natasha Simons from the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC).
2022 was a big year for ROR in many ways, but it was especially notable from a tech standpoint. In early 2022, we built tools and processes that allowed ROR to begin curating the registry separately from GRID, which quickly opened possibilities for tackling projects that had been waiting on the back burner until ROR became fully independent.
We are thrilled to announce that ROR has been selected by SCOSS as essential open infrastructure and will be highlighted in the latest SCOSS campaign, which kicked off this week.
We are thrilled to introduce a new member of the ROR pride: Amanda French has joined ROR as our full-time Technical Community Manager.
