Abstract
GFZ Data Services is the central service point for the publication of research data at the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). It provides data publishing services to scientists of GFZ, associated projects, and associated institutions. The publishing services aim to make research data and physical samples visible and citable, by assigning persistent identifiers (DOI, IGSN) and by complementing existing IT infrastructure. To integrate several research domains a modular software stack that is made of free software components has been created to manage data and metadata as well as register persistent identifiers [1]. Pivotal component for the registration of DOIs is the DOIDB. It has been derived from three software components provided by DataCite [2] that moderate the registration of DOIs and the deposition of metadata, allow the dissemination of metadata, and provide a user interface to navigate and discover datasets. The DOIDB acts as a proxy to the DataCite infrastructure and in addition to the DataCite metadata schema, it allows to deposit and disseminate metadata following the schemas ISO19139 and NASA GCMD DIF. The search component has been modified to meet the requirements of a geosciences metadata portal. In particular, the search component has been altered to make use of Apache SOLRs capability to index and query spatial coordinates. Furthermore, the user interface has been adjusted to provide a first impression of the data by showing a map, summary information and subjects. DOIDB and its components are available on GitHub [3]. We present a software solution for registration of DOIs that allows to integrate existing data systems, keeps track of registered DOIs, and provides a metadata portal to discover datasets [4].
