Platform for storing finding and accessing data. DataCite provides a service for data centres to mint DOIs and store associated metadata. The goals of DataCite are to establish easier access to scientific research data on the Internet increase acceptance of research data as legitimate citable contributions to the scientific record and support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study.DataCite is global with member institutions offering services and advice directly where they are needed by the researchers. While datasets are shared and accessed globally researchers work within national funding and organizational frameworks. DataCite therefore operates globally with national representation.The DataCite Metadata Scheme is a list of core metadata properties chosen for the accurate and consistent identification of data for citation and retrieval purposes along with recommended use instructions.
