Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in European Registry of Materials should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
ERM00000044   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from European Registry of Materials should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
2022 European Registry of Materials: global, unique identifiers for (undisclosed) nanomaterials
Metaregistry European Registry of Materials

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 4 mappings to external registries for this resource with 3 unique external prefixes.

A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier ERM00000044 is used to demonstrate the providers available for European Registry of Materials. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.

European Registry of Materials erm
Bioregistry bioregistry miriam
Name-to-Thing n2t
Extra Providers

Additional providers curated in the Bioregistry are listed here. These are typically inherited from or Prefix Commons, and need extra curation.
