Every single data-set is assigned a DOI and metadata (F), the archive is accessible 24/7 online worldwide via https protocol (A), the data-files adhere to community and preservation standards (I), and a readme-file and usage license is provided for every data-set (R). This archive is accessible and usable for any researcher from the science and engineering disciplines. Please visit our website for more details.
DataCite is a leading global non-profit organisation that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data. Their goal is to help the research community locate, identify, and cite research data with confidence. They support the creation and allocation of DOIs and accompanying metadata. They provide services that support the enhanced search and discovery of research content. They also promote data citation and advocacy through community-building efforts and responsive communication and outreach materials. DataCite gathers metadata for each DOI assigned to an object. The metadata is used for a large index of research data that can be queried directly to find data, obtain stats and explore connections. All the metadata is free to access and review. To showcase and expose the metadata gathered, DataCite provides an integrated search interface, where it is possible to search, filter and extract all the details from a collection of millions of records.
