National Centre for Persistent Identifiers - ISSN, ORCID, DOI
The National Centre for Persistent Identifiers (hereinafter referred to as the PID Centre) operates as a separate department of the National Library of Technology. Its main objective is to provide administrative, coordination, methodological and financial support for the introduction and use of persistent identifiers (PIDs) compatible with European and international standards ((ISSN, ORCID iD, DOI and others).
The PID Centre is composed of expert coordinators who collect and organise knowledge on PIDs and provide methodological support to institutions interested in using PIDs. The PID Centre also serves as a forum for exchange and sharing of experiences with relevant identifiers among the institutions of the country.
