On the occasion of the release of v4.4 of the DataCite Metadata Schema its Metadata Working Group has updated the mapping to Dublin Core. This replaces the mapping in the Appendix of the DataCite-MetadataKernel v2.1. The mapping can be used to convert records described following version 4.4 of the DataCite Metadata Schema into records that comply with the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Schema.
The Earth System Data Branding (EASYDAB) was developed within the BMBF funded project AtMoDat. EASYDAB requires that the datasets have an open license,comply with the FAIR Data Principles, and were reviewed by the responsible repository for compliance with a quality guideline. Earth system research datasets published with a DataCite DOI that fulfil the EASYDAB quality requirements can be highlighted with an EASYDAB logo on the landing page. Using the EASYDAB label, repositories can indicate that...
Conference reports are a crucial source of information as they document the current state of research in a scientific community. Additionally, it is becoming more and more common practice to record and publish conference talks. These videos are an important element of contemporary scientific output. However, no sustainable standard has yet been established for handling these media types. While libraries have well-established procedures for collecting textual conference reports as part of the grey literature, comparable...
The Information Procurement and Publishing Behaviour of Researchers in the Natural Sciences and EngineeringJoanna Einbock, Britta Dreyer, Lambert Heller, Angelina Kraft, Sandra Niemeyer, Margret Plank, Philip Schrenk, Irina Sens, Julia Maria Struß & Marco Tullney
Commissioned by the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology, Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, engage AG conducted a quantitative online survey on the topic of information procurement and publishing behaviour among researchers in the natural sciences and engineering between the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. More than 1,400 researchers from German higher education institutions (HEIs) and non-university research institutions provided insight into their research activities...

As part of our 10-year anniversary, we want to tell you the story of how DataCite was founded 10 years ago. Therefore, we approached several people ‘who were there’ to tell you their part of the story. This guest blog post is by Frauke Ziedorn, who...
Currently, information on scientific events such as conferences is often scattered and not available in the long term. With the project ConfIDent we want to develop a service platform for the quality-driven, collaborative curation of semantically structured metadata of scientific events. It will provide reliable and transparent data and workflows for researchers (organizers, speakers, participants) as well as other stakeholders of scientific events such as university administrations, libraries, sponsors, publishers or specialized societies. The sustainability...
Grey Literature has become a corner stone of the supply of scientific and academic literature. TIB is the German National Library of Science and Technology with a strong focus on Grey Literature. The acquisition of this kind of literature is not a simple process due to the unconventional distribution channels and the cost. For this purpose TIB has its own grey literature acquisition team. In order to keep the data readable and accessible in the...
