DOI Fabrica Form Gets a Facelift

Robin Dasler
When we launched the DOI registration form in DOI Fabrica last year, we purposely kept it pretty basic. We wanted to get the most-used metadata fields in front of the people who needed them as soon as possible. But it’s always been our intention to...

What you told us: the DataCite member survey

Helena Cousijn
As a membership organization, our members are our most important source of information. We try to stay in touch with all our members, look for them at conferences, and take all input seriously. However, to date we hadn’t gathered structured feedback...

Test prefix 10.5072 retiring June 1

Robin Dasler
At the end of last year, we made significant changes to how testing works for our Members and Clients. We re-introduced a completely separate test system and did away with testing within the production account. We think these changes will ultimately...

A Lens on DataCite Open Hours

Mary Hirsch
As a membership organization we take our community engagement activities very seriously. We jump at the chance to interact with our members, whether it be at conferences, steering group meetings, our general assembly, or during DataCite Open Hours.

Identify your affiliation with Metadata Schema 4.3

Robin Dasler & Madeleine de Smaele
The DataCite Metadata Schema is the basis for the metadata you submit to DataCite. It tells you the available fields and structure for your metadata records. Many of our members have told us that they’d really like to be able to include affiliation...

The DataCite Membership model: consortia, repositories, and more

Helena Cousijn

The DataCite Metadata Schema is the basis for the metadata you submit to DataCite. It tells you the available fields and structure for your metadata records, and it’s what we validate against to make sure everything is as it should be. The metadata...

Usage Stats for datasets: now available in DataCite Search

Robin Dasler
Those of you attending the recent General Assembly might have heard us talk about how DataCite is at a crossroads. We’ve spent the last several years building and honing the infrastructure necessary to make it simple for institutions to create and...

Using Jupyter Notebooks with GraphQL and the PID Graph

Martin Fenner
Two weeks ago DataCite announced the pre-release version of a GraphQL API [Fenner (2019)]. GraphQL simplifies complex queries that for example want to retrieve information about the authors, funding and data citations for a dataset with a DataCite...

Tracking the Growth of the PID Graph

Martin Fenner
The connections between scholarly resources generated by persistent identifiers (PIDs) and associated metadata form a graph: the PID Graph [Fenner & Aryani (2019)]. We developed this PID Graph concept in the EC-funded FREYA project, and have identified...

Fabrica Update: Introducing Repositories

Robin Dasler

Work through your PID problems on the PID Forum

Rachael Lammey, Alice Meadows & Helena Cousijn
As self-confessed PID nerds, we’re big fans of persistent identifiers. However, we’re also conscious that the uptake and use of PIDs isn’t a done deal, and there are things that challenge how broadly these are adopted by the community. At PIDapalooza...

DataCite needs better member data: update your information in DOI Fabrica

Helena Cousijn & Patricia Cruse
At the end of last year we conducted the first DataCite member survey. And one of the things you told us is that relevant information doesn’t always reach you. This is obviously really important to us, so we immediately put it on our 2019 roadmap....

Upcoming Changes to DOI Content Negotiation

Martin Fenner
DOI content negotiation is one of the oldest DataCite services, launched in 2012. Content negotiation makes it easy to fetch DataCite metadata in other metadata formats, for example BibTeX or schema.org, or as formatted citation in one of more than...

Introducing the PID Graph

Martin Fenner & Amir Aryani
This post has been cross-posted from the FREYA blog. Persistent identifiers (PIDs) are not only important to uniquely identify a publication, dataset, or person, but the metadata for these persistent identifiers can provide unambiguous linking between...

The DataCite GraphQL API is now open for (pre-release) business

Martin Fenner
DataCite DOIs describe resources such as datasets, samples, software and publications with rich metadata. An important part of this metadata is the description of connections between resources that use persistent identifiers (PIDs) provided by DataCite...

Leave us feedback on our new roadmap

Robin Dasler
We As some of you may have seen at our last open hours, our roadmap has a new look. The previous version was fed directly from our GitHub milestones. This meshed nicely with how we operate at DataCite, but we heard from many of you that GitHub wasn...
