(14 October 2014) DataCite and Open Data Institute are joining forces to help make open data underpinning open research more reusable to drive science and innovation.
Ultimately, to reuse data effectively, the conditions for reuse must be transparent and linked, and the innovators leading these efforts must be in a position to determine and then describe the conditions for this reuse. Incumbent on this achievement is finding reliable ways to link data to these conditions.
As an enabler of the discovery, exploration and use of data, DataCite is delivering robust and persistent data identification services. Engaging stakeholders including researchers, scholars, data centres, libraries, publishers and funders through advocacy, guidance and services, DataCite is working with the ODI to enhance reusability of open data by encouraging data stewards to link it with Open Data Certificates (ODCs).
