1 Introduction to DataCite Adam Farquhar PhD Head of Digital Library Technology, The British Library President, DataCite June 2010

2 2 Widening gap No effective way to link between datasets and articles No widely used method to identify datasets No widely used method to cite datasets Articles Underlying data

3 3 As a result… Datasets are Difficult to discover Difficult to access Being lost

4 4 Datasets – first class citizens? Data is difficult to manage after project funding ceases Informal networks provide the primary means of sharing Only 21% use a national or international facility Datasets are not included in impact analysis Good luck finding it or getting permission to use it (your discipline may vary) Source: UKRDS Study

5 5 DataCite – an award winning global consortium DataCite aims to: Establish easier access to scientific research data Increase acceptance of research data Support archiving of data for verification and re-use

6 6 Membership From Canada to Australia Currently twelve members across nine countries Over 800,000 records registered with DOI names so far

7 7 Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) offer a solution Mostly widely used identifier for scientific articles Researchers, authors, publishers know how to use them Put datasets on the same playing field as articles DataCite uses DOIs for Data: DataCite : Data Centres :: CrossRef : Publishers Dataset Yancheva et al (2007). Analyses on sediment of Lake Maar. PANGAEA. doi: /PANGAEA URLs are not persistent (e.g. Wren JD: URL decay in MEDLINE- a 4-year follow-up study. Bioinformatics. 2008, Jun 1;24(11):1381-5).

8 8 Rapid progress builds on foundational work TIB begins to issue DOIs for datasets Paris Memorandum DataCite Association founded in London 7 members 12 members All members assigned DOIs Over 800,000 items registered Pilot projects with Data Centres Production services with Data Centres Shared technical infrastructure Integrated services with key partners

9 9 DataCite The DataCite registration agency Maintains the resolution infrastructure Maintains a searchable database of metadata Manages identifiers over the long term Establishes and shares best practice Publishing agents (data centres, research institutes, publishers) are responsible for Quality assurance Content storage and access Creating the identifier Creating and updating metadata

10 10 Structure Carries International DOI Foundation DataCite Member Institution Data Centre Member Institution Data Centre … Works with Managing Agent (TIB) Member Associated Members

11 11 Supporting the community DataCite Supports researchers by enabling them to locate, identify, and cite research datasets with confidence Supports data centres by providing workflows and infrastructure to identify and cite datasets Supports publishers by enabling research articles to be linked to the underlying data

12 12 DataCite Summer Meeting: Making Datasets Visible and Accessible Explore the issues Ensure that DataCite takes the right next steps Strengthen the community of practice across national and disciplinary boundaries Establish best practice for dataset metadata and citation Understand roles and responsibilities among publishers, data centres, and libraries DataCite supports researchers by enabling them to locate, identify, and cite research datasets with confidence adam.farquhar bl.uk jan.brase tib.uni-hannover.de
