Digital Object Identifiers for EOSDIS data

ESDSWG TIWG November 2, 2011

publishable persistent data identifiers
Publishable Persistent Data Identifiers
    • Want unique and lasting dataidentifiers for publication
    • More frequent and consistent citation of EOSDIS datasets
    • To find the NASA data used in research
      • Regardless of where it is moved to or who becomes responsible for it
      • The LTA corollary: To find the documentation for archived data
    • To enable metrics collection on cited datasets
  • Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) have emerged as the most accepted data identifier in the publishing community.
what is a digital object identifier
What is a Digital Object Identifier?
  • The DOI® system and the Handle System: Internet infrastructure
    • DOI is an application of the Handle System to intellectual property
    • Owned by International DOI Foundation (IDF)– . The system was developed from the publishing industry (circa 2000)
    • Internet resolution service for unique and persistent identifiers of digital objects
  • Consists of two part alphanumeric string doi:[prefix]/[suffix]
    • E.g., 10.1234/123; Prefix 10 is the DOI registry identifier; 1234 the Registrant (e.g. NASA)
    • Suffix alphanumeric string identifies the data item as decided by the registrant or agent
    • Example for Earthquake Event Dataset Authored by Automated System:
      • Geofon operator (2009): GEOFON event gfz2009kciu (NW Balkan Region) GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam(GFZ). [ doi:10.1594/GFZ.GEOFON.gfz2009kciu ]
  • Citation and Location information is maintain at the DOI registry by an IDF Registrant Agent (RA) through a subscription provider
    • Citation and location information can be updated as frequently as desired by the Registrant subscription holder
    • Desire is for one DOI per data item; but registry does not preclude multiple registrations/publishers of ‘similar’ data
    • Can migrate existing DOIs to new or different Registrant Agent and/or owner at any time

Implementing DOIs for EOSDIS
    • Develop ops concept and scope ESDIS-DAAC roles/responsibilities
      • Prepareguidelines for DOI suffix profile, citation/location information.
      • Draw on CDL (Joan Starr) and DOE experience (Sharon Jordan)
      • Want DOIs to be attractive to users, solicit feedback from DAAC UWGs
  • Assign roles and responsibilities; Prepare guidance and instructions; Subscribe for DOI service ($2,500/yr)
  • Request, assign, monitor DOIs, citation & location info
  • Add DOIs to DAAC product citation web pages
  • Add DOIs to GCMD and ECHO through metadata updates
  • Imbed DOIs into product metadata at next reprocessing
  • Add DOI metadata to NTRS for searchable documentation
  • Setup metrics collection from journal citation reports

operations concept
Operations Concept
  • ESDIS approves the process for assigning DOI structure names
    • Approve new DOIs and best practices
      • Avoid organization references in the structure
      • Assign new DOIs at dataset level, when a major change in product version
      • Support ancillary (e.g., non-NASA) ES datasets on non-interference basis
    • Keep DOI suffix structure master – ensures consistency and uniqueness
      • i.e., maintain two levels – <project or mission-instrument>/<product id>
    • Monitor citation and location maintenance
      • Support action on nominal rate of requests from DAACs, submits the citation and location information through EZID
    • Provide guidance on implementation of DOIs in metadata
  • DAACs propose the products/order to be assigned DOIs
    • Provide citation and location information according to ESDIS guidelines
      • Grandfather or reassign ORNL existing doi name. <ORNLDAAC> for <project>
    • Post online DOI information as they become associated with datasets
    • Work with Science/Mission instrument teams and product generation teams to get DOIs embedded into product granule-level metadata
member institute using datacite ra california digital library and ezid
Member Institute using DataCite (RA):California Digital Library and EZID
  • EZID is a service providing researchers a way to manage identifiers persistently for datasets, files, and resources of all types. The service is available via a machine to machine programming interface (an API) and as a web user interface.
  • Core functions:
    • Create a persistent identifier: DOI
    • Add object location (URL landing page, separate from citation)
    • Add citation metadata (DataCite repository, mandatory shown below)
      • Creator (person or organization)
      • Title (long name of dataset)
      • Publisher (holder of the data – organization making it available)
      • Publication Year (year when data was, or will be first available)
    • Update object location
    • Update object metadata
registration agent datacite
Registration Agent: DataCite
  • DataCite, established a scientific data application with IDF.
  • Service is run by open membership organization of gov and edu libraries. Focused on improving the scholarly infrastructure around datasets.
  • Most appropriate RA because of their focus on working with data centers to assign persistent identifiers to datasets leveraging the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) infrastructure.
  • United States Member Institutes
    • California Digital Library (Founding Member)
      • Recommended subscription provider because of bulk pricing and EZID Web/API services
    • Office of Scientific and Technical Information, US Department of Energy ( new Member Dec 2010)
    • Purdue University Libraries (Member)
    • Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research - ICPSR (Associate Member)
    • Microsoft Research (Associate Member)

daac recommendations for dois
DAAC Recommendations for DOIs
  • ORNL already using CrossRef RA but would like to transition to DataCite and California Digital Library’s EZID (Bob Cook)
    • Views EZID as having better services more closely aligned to our community
    • DataCite and EZID have started discussions with Thomson Reuters to get data citations (i.e., DOIs) in their index; expose EZID catalog.
    • Expects easy transition – DOI remains the same; get machine readable citation from CrossRef; script using EZID api to populate DataCite metadata.
  • NSIDC recommends using DOIs and EZID (Ruth Duerr & Mark Parsons)
    • bulk pricing
    • a web service as well as API for bulk processing
    • ARKs as well as DOIs – to support granule citations
  • GSFC in contact with CDL about DOIs and EZID (Chris Lynnes)
    • Involved in structure for AIRS observations in CMIP5
    • Interested in a project wide approach and service
  • PODAAC has expressed interest in assigning DOIs (Andy Bingham)
