DOI Workflow Best Practices: Regional Exemplars from DataCite Members

October 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm CEST

The Best Practice session will showcase some examples from DataCite Members who have implemented workflows that enable connection metadata to be included when they register DataCite DOIs.

The connection metadata properties in the DataCite Metadata Schema are nameIdentifiers (e.g., ORCIDs), affiliationIdentifiers (e.g., RORs), relatedIdentifiers (e.g., DOIs), and fundingReferences (e.g., Crossref funder IDs).

Connecting DataCite DOIs to other PIDs is essential for discovery and reuse of the underlying content and for making sure researchers get credit for sharing their outputs.

Join this session to understand how DataCite Members adopt best practices for connecting metadata in their research outputs.
