Through the Party Infrastructure Project, the People Australia Data Administration module will be used to provide the research sector with tools to better manage identities for researchers and research organisations. In particular, data managers will be able to match their researcher records with existing party records and be able to create new party records. In both cases they will be able to obtain a persistent identifier for the party. These tools will encourage better management and curation of data generated by Australian research and support the long-term access, use and re-use of this data.
The project will involve consultation with the research sector so that improvements can be identified and the module refined to cater for the sector's specific needs.
