One common question we receive about ROR registry records is whether they reflect organizational hierarchy and relationships between organizations – yes, they do!
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.
The ROR registry has grown! We are excited to announce a new ROR registry release. With this update, the registry has grown to 102,559 records.
ROR is looking for a data manager to lead metadata curation activities for the registry, including coordinating registry updates and maintenance, working with ROR’s community curation advisors, and developing and implement long-term curation policies and practices.
