“Datacite and the FREYA project partners are proud to announce the official launch of Datacite Commons today. Datacite Commons is the web interface to explore the PID Graph. formed by the publications datasets research software, and other research outputs generated by researchers working at research institutions and supported by grant funding (???) The PID Graph depends on persistent identifiers to uniquely identify all these resources and metadata that describe these resources and their connections
We launched a pre-release version of Datacite Commons in August Fenner (2020a) and have used the last two months not only for many small improvements and bug fixes but also to add two important new features a statistics page that describes the information available in the PID Graph, and personal accounts that allow for ORCID claiming and other functionality going forward….”
“Today DataCite is proud to announce the launch of DataCite Commons, available at https://commons.datacite.org. DataCite Commons is a discovery service that enables simple searches while giving users a comprehensive overview of connections between entities in the research landscape. This means that DataCite members registering DOIs with us will have easier access to information about the use of their DOIs and can discover and track connections between their DOIs and other entities. DataCite Commons was developed as part of the EC-funded project Freya and will form the basis of new DataCite services….
We integrate with both the ORCID and ROR (Research Organization Registry) APIs to enable a search for (10 million) people and (100,000) organizations and to show the associated content. For funding, we take advantage of the inclusion of Crossref Funder IDs in ROR metadata. We combine these connections, showing a funder, research organization, or researcher not only their content but also the citations and views and downloads if available, together with aggregate statistics such as numbers by year or content type….”
