Tagging RRIDs

The Resource Identification Initiative (#RRID) is designed to help researchers sufficiently cite the key resources used to produce the scientific findings reported in the biomedical literature. Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource, which could be Antibodies, Model Organisms, Cell Lines, Plasmids, and other Tools.

There is a format for RRIDs. To ensure they are recognizable, unique, and traceable, identifiers are prefixed with ” RRID: “, followed by a second tag that indicates the source authority that provided it (e.g. “AB” for the Antibody Registry, “CVCL” for the Cellosaurus, “MMRRC” for Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers, “SCR” for the SciCrunch registry of tools).
