Aim of the project
Development and operation of a central agency for allocation, registration and management of DOIs for primary and secondary data of Swiss universities.
Description of the project
An organizational concept is to be devised and implemented for operating the registration agency. In addition, the requisite technical infrastructure is to be developed and then launched. For each digital object, in addition to the DOI and the associated URL, the metadata is also registered in Dublin Core format.
DOI purchasers are institutes and institutions that operate a document server. The sustainability of these data storage units must be ensured. The end users of the service are members of the Swiss scientific community who want to make their primary data (e.g. series of measurements) or secondary data (e.g. post-prints) citable on a long-term basis. The guidelines for DOI registration are set out in a policy.
