DOI registration with DataCite - COOPEUS, ENVRI, EUDAT workshop 2013

  1. 1. Frauke Ziedorn Joint COOPEUS-ENVRI-EUDAT workshop on persistent identifiers for open time series data 25th June 2013 DOI registration with DataCite
  2. 2. 2 • German National Library of Science and Technology. Scope: all areas of engineering, as well as architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. • Evaluation by external international reviewers every 7 years (lastly 2011-02) • Outcome (amongst others): Particularly worth mentioning is the operation of the national DOI registration agency for referencing research data. With it, the TIB offers an innovative and important service that is acknowledged internationally. The TIB
  3. 3. 3 A little History • 2003: DFG-funded Project of the TIB with World DataCenters regarding the publication of research data. • 2005: TIB becomes the first DOI registration agency for research data. From the beginning, grey literature is also registrered. • 2009-03: Paris Memorandum regarding the cooperation of 6 European information providers. • 2009-12: DataCite is founded in London with 7 members.
  4. 4. 4 DataCite • Growing demand to make data citable. • DataCite is an international consortium whose aims are • to establish easier access to research data on the Internet • to increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record • to support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study. • 2013: • 17 members from 12 countries, • 5 associated members, • ~1.5 Million DOIs
  5. 5. 5 The DOI System • The DOI system offers long-term persistence and accessibility of data. • Based on the Handle system. • In May 2012 the DOI System ISO Standard 26324 was published. • Part of the quality control is mandatory metadata for each object registered with a DOI. DOI®, DOI.ORG® and shortDOI® are trademarks of the International DOI Foundation

  7. 7. 7 DataCite Clients • DataCite registers DOIs for • Research data, • Non-textual materials (e.g. videos, software, images), • Grey literature. • Mostly academic and non-commercial clients. • Clients are responsible for data archival (= data centers).
  8. 8. 8 Requirements for the DOI registration • Commitment to data persistence • Metadata delivery • Provision of landing pages • Granularity of data (cite-worthy?) • DOI syntax: • Use opaque strings • Use only: A-Z a-z 0-9 . : - _ / -> DataCite Business Modells Principles doi:10.2314/529827735 Prefix Suffix
  9. 9. 9 DataCite Services • Registration and updating of DOI names. • Storage of metadata. • Accessible via UI or API. Metadata Store (MDS)
  10. 10. 10 DataCite and Metadata • Metadata make data discoverable. • Long-term maintenance of metadata is an important part of the persistence of an identifier. • Schema is inspired by Dublin Core. • Core value of the DataCite Metadata Schema: Linking between data and related objects. • Future vision: Links between all related publications and objects.
  11. 11. 11 DataCite Metadata Schema • Identifier (with type attribute) • Creator (with type and nameIdentifier attributes) • Title (with optional type attribute) • Publisher • PublicationYear • Citation: Creator (PublicationYear): Title. Publisher. Identifier Mandatory Properties
