DataCite Releases Metadata Version Update

The DataCite Metadata Working Group is happy to announce that it has completed work on Version 3.1 of the metadata schema. The schema and documentation are both available now from schema.datacite.org.
This new update is composed almost completely of changes suggested by you, the members of DataCite’s community of users. The Working Group received these suggestions primarily via our Discussion Forum.

Datacite and Open Data Institute (ODI) join forces to boost data reuse

DataCite and Open Data Institute are joining forces to help make open data underpinning open research more reusable to drive science and innovation.

Ultimately, to reuse data effectively, the conditions for reuse must be transparent and linked, and the innovators leading these efforts must be in a position to determine and then describe the conditions for this reuse. Incumbent on this achievement is finding reliable ways to link data to these conditions.

DataCite and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS) sign MoU

Today DataCite and the ICSU World Data System (ICSU-WDS) announce an agreement to strengthen their collaboration and enhance the availability of high-quality scientific data to researchers worldwide. To accomplish this, the two principal membership organizations will cooperate more closely through joint working groups leading to results that will benefit their communities. They will also enhance strategic exchange and communication among their Members.

ORCID and DataCite Final Event: Towards Holistic Open Research

The ODIN project has been working since 2012 to link researchers to their datasets using PIDs in real-world research systems. The team have examined the landscape as it evolves with input from an international group of experts in the field and built practical tools to enable others to link PIDs.

Why do we need persistent identifiers (PIDS)? What can we do with them - and what can’t we do without them? Given that the technology exists, why don’t researchers already have access to all the PIDs, systems and services that they could possibly need?

Thomson Reuters Collaborates with DataCite to Expand Discovery of Research Data

Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index’s cooperation with DataCite guides industry to better discovery, attribution and connectivity to research

Cooperation between DataCite and ResearchGate

We are happy to announce that the scientific network ResearchGate is now supporting DataCite DOI names for the scientific content of its members. Through cooperation of ResearchGate, DataCite and DataCite’s member TIB (German National Library of Science and Technology), scientists can easily integrate DataCite DOI names into their scientific profile. Furthermore they can even register new DOI names if they upload scientific content to ResearchGate.

DataCite Annual Conference - Programme update and deadline extension

Nancy (France) - 25 and 26 August 2014

Registration for the DataCite 5th Annual Conference is still open. This year’s theme, Giving Value to Data: Advocacy, Guidance, Services will highlight recent developments in the discovery, access and reuse of research data. The conference will celebrate the dramatic advances made in the way the research community works with data since minting the first DOI for data a decade ago. This is underscored by DataCite minting its 3,500,000th DOI (Digital Object Identifier) earlier this year.

ORCID and DataCite sign an MoU

ORCID and DataCite are pleased to announce their joint commitment to research data by signing a Memorandum of Understanding. ORCID and DataCite agree that data are essential building blocks of scholarship and research in the sciences, medicine, social sciences, and humanities. Researchers and scholars recognize the potential for increasing collaboration and synthesis when data are archived, published, and shared, forging the possibility for new discoveries built upon prior work.
