*ORCID and DataCite are pleased to announce their joint commitment to
research data by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.* ORCID and DataCite
agree that data are essential building blocks of scholarship and research
in the sciences, medicine, social sciences, and humanities. Researchers and
scholars recognize the potential for increasing collaboration and synthesis
when data are archived, published, and shared, forging the possibility for
new discoveries built upon prior work.* This vision requires that data be
discoverable, citable, and connected to the people who created it. Reliable
persistent data and researcher identification are essential to establish
these links.*
