DataCite, a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) registry agent, is an international organization which aims to improve data citation in order to:
- establish easier access to research data on the internet
- increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record
- support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study
From the Executive Director:
“DataCite's Executive Board overwhelmingly supported your application for membership.”
This membership enables the Library to provide increased data services that will support data citation and discovery.
