Pilot Project Updates
eNeuro, from the Society for Neuroscience, strongly encourages RRIDs.
NIDA publicly supports RRIDs as a method for meeting new "key biological resource authentication" guidelines aimed at improving research reproducibility.
Neuron, from Cell Press, requires RRIDs.

RII Paper submitted to F1000. Preprint now available for review.
PLoS Biology and Genetics come on board!
Still growing! Over 130 papers and 23 journals. Follow updates at #RRID
We've reach 100 papers with RRID's from 17 different journals! We have a database of RRIDs in Google Docs.
The project is still going strong. We now have over 80 papers from 15 journals. A resolver service has been created: http://scicrunch.com/resolver/RRID:nlx_144509. RRID's can be searched through the Resource Identification Portal.
RRID's are going strong! We have over 50 papers that have appeared from 11 journals. We are keeping a database of RRIDs available as a Google Doc. If you'd like to see RRID's in action, go to Google Scholar.
The pilot project is just finishing up 3 months, and we are starting to see the first papers with RRID's appear in the published literature. Google Scholar is picking up the most RRID's. Of course, RRID is not a unique string, so you have to use "since 2014" as a filter.
We will be posting statistics here as we get them.
Even within the first set of papers, we are seeing re-use of some resources. We are hoping that as the data set becomes populated, third parties will start to develop applications that can make use of these. Please contact us if you are interested.
Although the initial pilot project was to run from Feb 1 to April 30th, 2014, we've had many more journals join along the way. As we'd like to get at least 3 months of data for each, we'll be continuing the project for the next few months. Of course, participants should feel free to continue with the project if they are willing. The more data the better!
