Published research data are a legitimate contribution to the scientific publication list. For scientists, it is good scientific practice to cite research data. The DKRZ supports this practice by archiving the data long-term and issuing the persistent identifier DataCite DOI.

We offer

  • Minting and requesting DataCite DOIs for data archived in the WDCC.
  • Persistent storage of data and metadata in the DKRZ long-term archive WDCC.
  • Final quality assurance by WDCC in cooperation with data producers
  • Ensure permanent access to data and metadata via persistent DOI identifiers, enabling simple and clear data quotations in scientific publications.
  • Provision of metadata in specific formats for publication in other scientific portals.
