DOIs for Theses survey | UK DataCite Consortium

The British Library, as Lead of the UK DataCite Consortium, is looking into collaborating further with UK universities, with the aim of restarting earlier work on developing good practice in use of DataCite DOIs for theses. We would appreciate it if you could complete this survey and with your insight help us meet the needs of the HE institutions and researchers. The UK DataCite Consortium was established in 2010. Over the years, we have grown to over 100 consortium organisations in the UK and abroad. In the past year we have been working alongside DataCite on a new membership model which includes a lower membership fee. Additionally, the DataCite Metadata Schema (version 4.4. - was recently updated with important additions, something which could further positively impact our capacity to attract new clients. In the past, when research organisations mainly wanted to mint DOIs for journal articles we advised them that CrossRef was more suitable. However, with new changes to the Metadata Schema, this no longer applies. As DataCite explained: “this release of the Metadata Schema contains better support for textual publications. Important changes are the addition of specific resource types such as journal, journal article, dissertation, etc., and also includes computational notebook and peer review, so that these types can be better identified.” All responses are anonymous and email addresses will be separated from the results before any further analysis or processing takes place. We will hold your email address on a separate list used only to contact you about our current work regarding Persistent Identifiers for theses, and will destroy this list when that work is complete; you may opt out at any time. For the purposes of data protection, we will process this in the legitimate interest of delivering and improving the DataCite service in the UK, in line with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
