These examples were provided during a discussion on the ESIP-Preserve Listserv

  1. From Helen Conover at Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC)
    For our DOIs, GHRC is using a basic dataset information page generated from our collection level metadata. It includes a brief description and links to data, browse and documentation.
    We have these pages for all of our datasets, though we've only got a few with DOIs, so far. Here's an example:

  2. From Bob Cook at Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC):
    Each of our data sets have a DOI, the characteristics of which are:
    • Persistent
    • Actionable
    • Specific
      • Links to the data set, itself
    • Complete
      • Links to data and the information needed to understand and use the data
    • Machine-readable
      • not yet, but we'd like to
  3. From Mark Parsons at National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC)
    From that landing page you can click on "view metadata record" which leads you to a variety of different metadata formats including ISO in html and XML. Here is the ISO XML link for the data set above:
    We don't have good provenance info in the ISO, unfortunately.
    Our DOIs point to the human readable landing page. It would be nice if the identifier knew what was asking, so it could point machines to the XML. I think that is part of the intent with "inflections" in ARKs.

  4. From John Scialdone at Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC): Landing page without DOI

  5. From Bruce Vollmer at Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC)
    Following are landing pages for a couple of GES DISC MEaSUREs data sets that have been assigned DOIs:
    These pages are permanent for the DOIs assigned but will likely change in the coming weeks/months as the formatting of the information is cleaned up (e.g., clickable links) and adding other information is explored.
    Initially the landing pages are a reconstitution of GCMD DIF contents (re-use!) and contain only human readable contents that provide information on and access to the data. We are looking into adding additional useful information to the landing pages (beyond GCMD DIF contents) which potentially includes machine readable information.
