Washington, DC Morressier is now integrating CCC Ringgold Identifiers in its service offering to improve data transparency in early-stage research. As the ecosystem of scholarly communication becomes increasingly more interconnected, high-quality data is needed. That data is difficult to capture and manage without persistent identifiers, which enable data interoperability across the research lifecycle. Ringgold offers the industry-leading solution for organizational identifiers. The company became part of CCC in May 2022.

Integrating the Ringgold Identify Database, with its structured organizational hierarchies and metadata, on the Morressier platforms brings new efficiency to the research ecosystem by disambiguating data upstream. This integration helps take interoperability to the next level by powering early-stage research with robust identity management. Researchers who use the Morressier platforms will now be able to connect their outputs at every stage of the research lifecycle, providing timely validation for their work and their institution. 

Jen Goodrich, Morressier’s VP of Product, described this integration as “a huge win for consistent research data. We will associate institutional data with conference activities and track research from the early moments that it is shared through its evolution to conference proceedings, journal articles and beyond. We expect this to have significant influence on how researchers and their teams are recognized for their contributions to science.”

“We applaud Morressier’s strategy to deliver new value through a broader implementation of persistent identifiers across the value chain,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “CCC Ringgold PIDs are increasingly used across the scholarly publishing ecosystem to power interoperability and support data-driven applications.”

This integration takes early-stage research data to a new level, bringing connectivity, efficiency, and interoperability to this pre-publication research process. By integrating CCC Ringgold IDs with the Morressier platform, institutions, funders, and publishers will be able to track the research they fund and publish and gain new insights from early-stage research and accelerate breakthroughs.
