IGSN ID Registration: Moving from Interest to Implementation

The International Generic Sample Number (IGSN ID) is a globally unique and persistent identifier that can be assigned to any material sample resulting from research in any domain. Through a partnership between DataCite and the IGSN Organization (e.V.), DataCite DOI services for registering IGSN IDs are available to all DataCite Members and Consortium Organizations. But…how does an organization actually work with its researchers to create a sample management workflow that incorporates IGSN ID registration?

DataCite Open Hours – April 2024

Join us for the next DataCite Open Hours on 24 April 2024, at 3–4 PM UTC.

For the Q2 edition of Open Hours, we will be hearing from three of the Global Access Fund (GAF) awarded projects. We will also be taking some time to discuss the topic of harvesting metadata.

Mengenal DataCite: Meningkatkan Adopsi Ekuitas, Akses, dan Persistent Identifier (PID)

DataCite adalah organisasi keanggotaan nirlaba global terkemuka yang menyediakan persistent identifier (PID) untuk keluaran dan sumber daya penelitian. Kami telah meluncurkan Program Duta DataCite untuk meningkatkan kesadaran, mendorong kolaborasi, dan mempromosikan praktik terbaik di antara komunitas regional melalui jaringan relawan kami yang berdedikasi dan terlibat dengan komunitas kami yang beragam. Program duta besar ini merupakan bagian dari Program Akses Global (GAP) DataCite, yang bertujuan untuk meningkatkan kesetaraan, akses, dan adopsi infrastruktur persistent identifier (PID) untuk komunitas di negara-negara yang kurang terwakili.

Unlocking Connectivity: The Crucial Role of Persistent Identifiers in Shaping a Connected Research Landscape

Persistent identifier systems are crucial parts of the global scholarly infrastructure, they facilitate the creation, management, and maintenance of open metadata for scholarly resources, and support open and FAIR research practices. On top of the descriptive metadata, the connection metadata PIDs host can provide rich insights into complex concepts and processes, such as the productivity and achievement of a researcher, the entire lifecycle of a research project, even the progress and impact of a research domain. Creating complete and high-quality connection metadata both relies on and benefits each stakeholder group in the research ecosystem.

DataCite Connect Prague 2024 (#DataCiteConnect24)

Educational Centre, National Library of Technology Technická 2710/6, 160 80 Praha 6, Czech Republic

The DataCite community will convene in Prague on June 10, 2024 to discuss how we can collectively make the most of metadata. In the session, we will discuss the value of consistent, standardized, and complete metadata; provide insight into current metadata practices; hear from DataCite Members about metadata challenges they face; and also discuss how registered metadata is currently (re)used. The session will include several interactive components, such as break-out sessions to discuss different (upcoming) resource types.
