Fairdata Service provides also DOI identifier for research datasets

Fairdata Service provides persistent identifiers and landing pages for all datasets published in Fairdata. In addition to URN identifiers, also DOI identifier can be used as a persistent identifer for Fairdata IDA datasets.

DOI identifier is commonly used for research dataset references. DOI identifier makes the metadata of a research dataset internationally more interoperatible and adds visibility. Until now Fairdata has used URN identifier (Uniform Resource Name) managed by National Library of Finland as on only option for the persistent identifer. URN will remain as an alternative for persistent identifer.

At the moment DOI identifier is available only for new datasets which have Fairdata IDA as a data storage. DOI identifier can be obtained by using Fairdata Qvain Light to describe and publish the dataset.
