ISNI is the ISO certified global standard number for identifying the millions of contributors to creative works and those active in their distribution, including researchers, inventors, writers, artists, visual creators, performers, producers, publishers, aggregators, and more. It is part of a family of international standard identifiers that includes identifiers of works, recordings, products and right holders in all repertoires, e.g. DOI, ISAN, ISBN, ISRC, ISSN, ISTC, and ISWC. The mission of the ISNI International Authority (ISNI-IA) is to assign to the public name(s) of a researcher, inventor, writer, artist, performer, publisher, etc. a persistent unique identifying number in order to resolve the problem of name ambiguity in search and discovery; and diffuse each assigned ISNI across all repertoires in the global supply chain so that every published work can be unambiguously attributed to its creator wherever that work is described.
Local identifiers in International Standard Name Identifier should match this
Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from International Standard Name Identifier should match
this regular expression:
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
3 mappings to external registries for
|Registry Name||Metaprefix||External Prefix|
|Biolink Model Registry||
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
isni:000000012281955X is used to demonstrate the provides available for
isni. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
