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 introduce a new member of the ROR pride: Amanda French has joined ROR as our full-time Technical Community Manager.
ROR is excited to welcome three new Steering Group members: Lautaro Matas, Kathleen Shearer, and Chris Shillum. Inaugurated in late 2019, the ROR Steering Group is an advisory body that supports the registry’s strategic planning and decision-making activities.
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.
The end of January 2022 marked the third anniversary of ROR’s launch at PIDapalooza 2019 in Dublin. Continuing with a tradition from the prior two years (2020 in Lisbon, and 2021 on Zoom), we marked the occasion with a community celebration to reflect on ROR’s progress and discuss the work that lies ahead.
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.
