GRID is a free, openly accessible database of research institution identifiers which enables users to make sense of their data. It does so by minimising the work required to link datasets together using a unique and persistent identifier. The result is the most clean and accurate data for robust reporting.
GRID has been developed by the team at Digital Science to address a challenge we faced ourselves – to have a common way to think about institutions in order to provide high quality reporting.
It has been broadly adopted by the Digital Science portfolio companies to facilitate data exchange, increase functionality, and support novel features. We think these benefits should be shared more widely in the scientific community to foster innovation and increase interoperability.
We’re pleased to make this invaluable dataset of identifiers openly available to the community via GRID.
