The new Identifiers.org platform is now available at https://cloud.identifiers.org. We will be switching to the new platform on the 17th of June 2019. The old platform and the services will continue to work at https://ebi.identifiers.org till the end of the year.
Identifiers.org is an established resolving system that enables the referencing of data for the scientific community, with a current focus on the Life Sciences domain. It handles persistent identifiers in the form of URIs and CURIEs. This allows the referencing of data in both a location-independent and resource-dependent manner. The provision of resolvable identifiers (URLs) fits well with the Semantic Web vision, and the Linked Data initiative.
