Persistent Identifiers (PIDs), particularly Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs), are crucial for establishing a robust and globally accessible research infrastructure. In Asia, a diverse array of research outputs and resources are produced and published in repositories. However, a significant number of these repositories, and outputs remain undiscoverable in global registries and aggregators. The adoption of DOIs among many Asian repositories is limited, highlighting a broader lack of awareness regarding the value of open PIDs in enhancing research discoverability. This report explores the current landscape of repository and publishing systems across Asia, alongside existing institutional Open Science policies. It emphasizes the need for collaborative efforts among stakeholders to address gaps in PID adoption and awareness. By promoting integration of Open Research practices, including the adoption of PIDs, institutions, researchers, funders, librarians, and governmental bodies can collectively enhance the visibility and accessibility of Asian research on a global scale. The report represents an initial step towards better understanding how to support local communities in Asia in building a more Open Research Infrastructure and promoting Open Science principles.
