The goal: To improve access to scientific research datasets produced by DOE-funded researchers by providing the DOI registration service.
• Provide the information infrastructure to identify, access, and preserve DOE-sponsored R&D results, with persistent identifiers being applied.
• Develop means to link a broader range of R&D results, beyond text documents, using DOIs for DOE-sponsored scientific research datasets.
California Digital Library and Purdue University are the other two U.S. members. CDL is here today to share their experiences and insights.
DataCite has registered over 1,000,000 DOI names.
