This paper shows the development of a Dutch Academic Information Domain (AID). The AID is a new concept that can be used to describe the interrelations between research descriptions, research data and research publications. In The Netherlands, the research information portal NARCIS is already offering access to these three research related information sources. The interlinking of these sources will lead to the realization of the AID. Interlinking is possible by using Digital Author Identifiers, by which names of researchers (in their different roles in the information sources) can be coupled. Besides, persistent identifiers will be used to identify resources independently of their localization. The metadata schema MODS - in a stripped form - will be introduced in order to harvest information objects together with the added identifiers. Eventually, this development will yield new compound information objects that are aggregations of distinct information units. The ideas will be elaborated further within the European DRIVER II project.
