EZID Service Update: July 2015
Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities
- EZID clients engaged in a lively discussion on EZID’s listserv about DOI assignment to datasets that change over time. If you have been reading about data citation over the last few years, you may recognize this topic as one of the enduring issues in the field. You see what EZID clients are thinking about and the approaches they are taking here: http://bit.ly/1KCaI9v.
- DataCite announced two new hires this month, Martin Fenner, DataCite’s new Technical Director and Laura Rueda, DataCite’s new Communications Director. Both bring great experience and skills to their new positions, and we are looking for good things to come from DataCite.

EZID Service Description
EZID (easy-eye-dee) is a production service that gives researchers the ability to create and manage long-term identifiers so that they can to track usage, get credit for their work, share their data, and have the data reused for additional research. As a result, EZID identifiers also make it possible to increase citations, to build on previous work, to conduct new research, and avoid duplicating previous efforts.
