  • This is a quick look at the topics I’ll try to cover this morning. And I’m going to make sure we have plenty of time for discussion afterward.
  • So here is what this looks like. Here is an example of a data set deposited with one of our clients, Dryad.Dryad is an international repository of data underlying peer-reviewed articles in the basic and applied biosciences.

What is their motivation?To provide fair credit to those responsible: exposureTo ensure scientific transparency and reasonable accountability for authors and stewards: transparencyTo aid in tracking the impact of the work: citation trackingTo help data authors verify how their data are being used: verificationTo aid scientific reproducibility through direct, unambiguous connection to the precise data used in a particular study: scientific re-useSource: ESIP—Earth Science Information Partners (http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Interagency_Data_Stewardship/Citations/provider_guidelines)

  • DOIs are one kind of persistent identifier.But what is an identifier?An identifier is an alphanumeric string assigned to an object, and if that assignment is managed with some metadata and the object is made available over time, the identifier becomes a VERY reliable way of keeping track of that object.

  • Let’s take a look at one.So you can see that with just the identifier and a simple set of metadata, you get:Location for VERIFICATIONEXPOSURE & CITATION TRACKING(this is not an actual DOI, nor an actual study)

  • We’re going to look at that same DOI so we can talk about it’s structure. Remember: this is a STRING associated with a TARGET URL.DOI structure is based on the Handle system of identifiers, because you can think of DOIs are a special implementation of the Handle system.So, here is the segment called the PREFIX.All DOI prefixes begin with ’10’ and this is followed by a “dot” and more numbers. The prefix is a unique number assigned to the specific registrant of DOIs. CDL has its own prefix, for example. NCAR has one too. The prefix is the common element in every DOI the registrant makes.The second part is the suffix--the part after the slash. This part has to be unique for every DOI created with the prefix.
  • This is a quick look at the topics I’ll try to cover this morning. And I’m going to make sure we have plenty of time for discussion afterward.
  • How can EZID be in the business of issuing DataCite DOIs? California Digital Library was one of the founding members.DataCite was indeed formed in 2009 by 10 Libraries and Research Centers with a Mission: “"Helping you find, access, and reuse data“The number has now grown to 17, with the National Research Council of Thailand joining this past December. In addition there are 5 associate members, including the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information and BGI, so there is a presence in Asia.DATACITE’s primary methodology for achieving this mission: issuing DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) for datasets.
  • In this new interface, we’ve introduced a number of new features One unified destination for all EZID INFORMATION.—screenshot of home pageEnhanced Management of identifiers—screenshots of browse and searchc) The ability to designate the identifier’s status (reserved or public) from the UI. Using advance create.If you click on any one of these links, you’ll get to information about how to use EZID, who’s using EZID, outreach materials, and so on.
  • By default, we take to a SIMPLE create screen.
  • Advanced options like the ability to “choose your own identifier”—the suffix body part we saw earlier.
  • A machine-to-machine interface or API, for automated processing, when you need large numbers of identifiers or you want the identifier creation event to be part of a workflow.
  • All but one of the Ucs5 members of Orbis CascadeAll told: 20 research universities, including all but one of the UCs and 5 members of Orbis Cascade Alliance6 more research groups on other university campuses7 government agenciesA couple of publishers and a handful of private companies offering data-related services.
