Organisations appear across the Research & Innovation data sources with different names and IDs, making it hard for scholarly communication infrastructures to uniquely link results and people. OpenAIRE developed the OpenOrgs service to address this ambiguity which greatly affects the information aggregated from different research organization registries (e.g. Research Organisation Registry – ROR, the Europen Commission and other funder databases) into building the OpenAIRE Research Graph.
OpenOrgs mixes automated processes and human curation. It was presented in a demo session at the Open Science Fair in September 2021 highlighting the importance of this disambiguation task not only for OpenAIRE services but for building a robust Open Science ecosystem, and practically showing OpenOrgs main functionalities and how users can interact with the service.
