Research Data: A DataCite Case Study From the British Library (Video)
From the Video Description:
The University of Leeds is working with the British Library to assign Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to its research data. This case study looks at how a Leeds researcher is using DOIs to make tropical forest inventory plot data easier to cite, find and use. ForestPlots.net is also giving DOIs to its data to recognise the work of data collectors and increase the transparency of published research.
