I've had a query about the DataCite metadata which I'm hoping someone can answer for me. Copied below:
Because the DataCite metadata is manually created, and the fact that it is not possible for them to harvest existing metadata via a CSW service, maintenance of DataCite metadata is going to be an issue, especially if publicly available via this search interface.
Do you know whether this maintenance overhead has been considered, and how it might work in practice?
Thanks and best wishes,
