I couldn't find a thread specifically taking about the EZID service ending for DOIs (ending the service for all except for California Schools - UC system or anyone still generating ARKs).
Here's EZID's announcement:
I've been on a few calls with EZID and DataCite and wonder if Harvard has talked about this implication?
There is a 6 month (to a year if you are actively "trying" to convert) window to change over from EZID to DataCite. This shouldn't be too much of a software problem, since Dataverse has DataCite DOI generation, so for us with institutional Dataverses, it is more about money and a new contract.
Currently there are 3 EZID features that DataCite does not (yet) have:
- web interface to manually add or edit DOIs
- reserving DOIs
- link checking
So my question is since Dataverse supports minting DataCite DOIs, how are DataCite DOIs "reserved" in Dataverse (since that is not something they support, yet)?
Here's EZID-to-DataCite migration guide:
Can this be a topic of discussion on the next Dataverse Community call?
Thanks for listening.
