2011 has been an exiting year. A lot has happened with DataCite and data citation in general. One year ago, I started this blog to keep you all updated. Today I am happy to present you the newest development:
The beta version of our DataCite search catalogue. You can find it at:
What is so special about it?
- We will store the metadata to every object that DataCite registers with a DOI there. Whether it is a dataset, a picture, an event or whatever.
- All metadata will follow the DataCite metadata scheme
- All metadata will be free under the CC0 license, giving you the right to use it for whatever you wish. And you can simply access it via our OAI interface
Currently we have around 800,000 records in there. Not all of them have metadata records yet, but it is progressing.
Interested in some use case examples?
- Well you can look at everything of course with the searchterm: *
- If you are interested what was uploaded in the last week try the searchterm: uploaded:[NOW-7DAY TO NOW]
- To find out which objects have relations of any kind to other objects, try the searchterm: relatedIdentifier:*
- If you are a publisher with DOI prefix 10.1055 for example, and you are interested, if your papers are related to our objects, try the searchterm: relatedIdentifier:*\:10.1055*
There are even some more nice features that I will tell you about in my next post. So much for now and enjoy playing with the catalogue.
