Webinar: DataCite Commons - Discovering PIDs and the PID Graph

DataCite Commons has been released as a minimum viable product and will be developed in the future. This webinar will present the new service and provide the background to it, including the user driven requirements gathering and give an opportunity for feedback on how much it meets your needs and what else you would like it to do.

It is a bit too early for the West Coast, where will you post the recorded version?

Still have some questions about the tool, for instance looking at https://commons.datacite.org/doi.org/10.14288/sockeye?query=10.14288%2Fsockeye, shall I reach out to you, Martin, directly?


I answered in a separate message thread that you started. Feel free to follow up in the PID Forum.
