Persistent Web IDentifiers – to overcome challenges in web referencing

| Free

7th Nov 2017 : 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Today, there is plenty of evidence that good scientific practice cannot be obtained for web references in general by today’s referencing practices. It is also evident that web references are crucial for both current and future research, and thus there is a high demand for new referencing methods to web material which can support good scientific practice.

This webinar will present the findings from Danish research projects which have resulted in suggestion of PWID (Persistent Web IDentifiers) referencing style including the four crucial elements: web archive, archiving time, archived URI and content coverage. This will be a sum-up of presentations from iPres 2016, and RESAW 2017, which covers research in web archive materials, research in use of web references and research in research data management of web archive materials. Finally, it will provide the latest status for standardization and support of the PWID referencing style.
