Towards richer metadata – perspectives from three DataCite projects

Kelly Stathis, Xiaoli Chen, Cody Ross & Paul Vierkant
Metadata is at the heart of DOIs and open scholarly infrastructure. At DataCite, our metadata schema defines what metadata properties can be included through DOI registration. The schema currently includes just six required properties—identifier (the DOI), creator, title, publication year, publisher, and resource type—along with 14 recommended and optional properties. On the one hand, requiring only six metadata properties keeps the schema flexible and makes it easy to get started with DOI registration. At the...

Refining our Thinking: How we are improving DataCite design processes.

Kristian Garza
Open science infrastructure discussions in working groups, task forces, project meetings, and collaborations can be complex. Generally, participants in these discussions have complex ideas from different perspectives that can be difficult to convey. This can sometimes feel like progress stagnates as we seek to address the community’s various needs. The DataCite product design team is acutely aware of this challenge. We believe that creative problem-solving and transparent decision-making can help us to make progress as...
