Dear Rockefeller University Community,
To better promote the Open Science movement at the Rockefeller University, the Rita and Frits Markus Library is excited to announce that we now have a membership with Datacite.
This membership enables the Library to create DOI’s (Digital Object Identifiers) for your research objects.
With access to Datacite, the Rockefeller University members can now have DOI’s created for items such as datasets, presentations, posters, images, and other research objects free of charge.
Using DataCite DOIs, the metadata associated with your research makes your research outputs more findable via search engines.
This agreement will also allow Rockefeller University researchers to more easily comply with funder mandates on data sharing and reuse which focus on ensuring data is findable and accessible via the use of persistent identifiers like DOI’s.
For further information on this new membership please contact Matthew Covey, University Librarian.
