DANS, provider of DataverseNL (formerly Dutch Dataverse Network),
controls two Handle prefixes. One is used for our production DVN
service, the other has been used for the 'sandbox' instance of DVN that
our users can use for demonstrations and testing.
The handles for the studies in the sandbox instance are not as stable as
the ones in the production DVN instance. Ideally, these should not be
registered at all, or be fake handle IDs (like Dataverse 4 registers
fake DOIs for datasets in the test environments).
How do others, err, handle Handle for sandbox data? Don't use a Handle
prefix? Use a dedicated test prefix? Other options?
Thanks in advance!
