  5. 5. 2012: STM, CrossRef and DataCite Joint Statement 1. To improve the availability and findability of research data, the signers encourage authors of research papers to deposit researcher validated data in trustworthy and reliable Data Archives. 2. The Signers encourage Data Archives to enable bi-directional linking between datasets and publications by using established and community endorsed unique persistent identifiers such as database accession codes and DOI's. 3. The Signers encourage publishers and data archives to make visible or increase visibility of these links from publications to datasets and vice versa •5

  7. 7. ODIN project • ORCID and DataCite interoperability network. Funded under FP7 • Claim your DataCite DOI with your ORCID profile:
  8. 8. Cooperation • MoU with ORCID • Agreement with Re3Data and DataBib to include their service in 2016 • MoU with RDA to become organisational affiliate • Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles
  9. 9. 2014 Annual conference
  10. 10. DataCite Working Groups Tech Team tech {@} Business Practices Metadata
  11. 11. Business Practices Working Group • What we do • Develop best business practices; articulate DataCite policy • Who we are • Members from France, Germany, Switzerland, UK, US, Canada Interested in becoming a member? karen.morgenroth {@}
  12. 12. Published 2012-10-01 Find it here: files/Business_Models_Principles_v1.0. pdf Or with doi:10.5438/0007 Business Models Principles
  13. 13. Business Models Principles • Information for allocation agencies • Costs/fees schedules; prefixes; membership; contracts/agreements • Information for clients • Commitment to persistent access; landing pages; syntax; mandatory metadata requirement • Definitions • Data sets; data papers; grey literature
  14. 14. Data Quality Survey WHY: Assess DataCite‘s role in ensuring data quality.  11.-25. June 2013: Online survey within the DataCite community •What constitutes data “quality” • No consensus; ‘Data quality’ is an abstract phrase •How might this quality be assessed • Scientific context; intended use; disciplinary standards; expert knowledge; data centres; peer review; metadata and documentation • What do you see as DataCite’s role in ensuring or assessing quality? • No direct role (Concept of “usurping” the role of scientific communities; ensuring data centres/repositories have procedures; Do DOIs actually indicate quality?); ensure metadata quality 52 responds
  15. 15. Outlook • Create recommendations based on the responses to the survey • Update the first version of the „Business Models Principles“ (definitions, granularity, landing pages, collaboration among the members, etc) • Get opinions from the DataCite community via Google Discussion Group • Support the DataCite Board in implementing the strategical plan 2013-2014
  16. 16. Metadata Working Group What we do • Create and update the Metadata Schema • Communication with the community Who we are • 12 members • 7 nations (USA, Canada, Germany, UK, Sweden, Netherlands, France) Interested in becoming a member? joan.starr {@}
  17. 17. DataCite Metadata Schema Mandatory Properties • Identifier (with type attribute) • Creator (with type and nameIdentifier attributes) • Title (with optional type attribute) • Publisher • PublicationYear Citation: Creator (PublicationYear): Title. Publisher. Identifier
  18. 18. DataCite Metadata Schema Optional and Recommended Properties: • Subject (with scheme attribute) • Contributor (with type and nameIdentifier attributes) • Date (with type attribute) • Language • ResourceType (with description attribute) • AlternateIdentifier (with type attribute) • RelatedIdentifier (with type and relationType attributes) • Size • Format • Version • Rights • Description (with type attribute) • GeoLocation (with point, box, and place)
  19. 19.
