ForestPlots.net: now able to assign D.O.I s to datasets

  • January, 2015

ForestPlots.net, the secure online database used to manage most of RAINFOR's long-term data, is now able to assign Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to datasets. DOIs provide a system for tracking where the data came from, citing it in publications and providing the data collectors with acknowledgment for their work.

ForestPlots.net has been used as a case study for DataCite and the British Library; it's currently the only research lead repository to assign DOIs. Find out more about DOIs and the ForestPlots.net case study here, and Dr Gabriela Lopez Gonzalez's interview with the British Library below.
