A large number of DOI metadata deposits do not include standardized subject classification metadata. In response to the lack of standardization, Datacite has begun mapping different subject classification vocabularies to a common vocabulary (Revised FIELD OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (FOS) classification in the Frascati Manual . One of the many vocabularies yet to be mapped is the DFG Fachsystematik . Re3data uses the DFG Fachsystematik to classify data repositories. A Taskforce, with members from DataCite, re3Data, and the Make Data Count project, was formed to tackle this problem. The Taskforce has now developed a candidate correspondence mapping between the DFG Fachsystematik and the OECD FOS classification to enable systems integrations, individuals, or organizations to map resources classified to the DFG notations to EOCD notations. This mapping would form part of the other mappings DataCite uses to standardize subject classification in the DOI metadata deposits.
