EZID Service Update: August 2015



Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities

  • We announced our 2015-2017 Roadmap, the result of long-range strategic planning conducted this summer. The planning process included gathering input from UC campus representatives, non-UC EZID clients, and internal CDL clients.
  • DataCite announced two new developments:
    • A new blog, with the goals of sharing ideas, discussing technical details, gathering feedback and fostering engagement.
    • A “claiming tool” which gives a great new search interface to the DataCite Metadata Store and then facilitates adding (or claiming) research products to your ORCID profile. It also has a nice citation-formatting tool.

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.
