Abstract for Symposium (IMCW 2014 Antalya)
DataCite – Data Citation, DOIs, and Cooperations

The lack of access to research data is often an obstacle to interdisciplinary and international research. In the context of research data management one of the most important elements is the ability to reference the data. The use of Persistent Identifiers (PID) is an important component in ensuring long-term access to scientific data. PID facilitate data citation and are also used for linking and publication purposes, thus increasing the acceptance of research data as scientific output. The German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) has identified the task of providing a PID registration service for data and giving access to data sets through existing catalogues as one of its new roles concerning scientific data. In 2005, TIB became the first DOI registration agency for research data, and since 2009 this task is performed in cooperation with the international consortium DataCite. DataCite’s goal is to establish easier access to and re-use of research data and to increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record.

The presentation will include an introduction to DataCite and its services as well as an introduction to DataCite’s many international cooperations.
