MBLWHOI Library Joins DataCite

DataCite, a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) registry agent, is an international organization which aims to improve data citation in order to:

  • establish easier access to research data on the internet
  • increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record
  • support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study

From the Executive Director:

“DataCite's Executive Board overwhelmingly supported your application for membership.”

This membership enables the Library to provide increased data services that will support data citation and discovery.
