The use of DOI persistent identifiers has become an attractive mechanism for citing datasets in articles. However, taking the users’ interests into account requires careful consideration of the way in which we apply these identifiers.
Our objective is the application of DOIs in such a way that individual datasets are properly cited while presenting the citations to the reader in a user-friendly manner.
This is achieved by making judicious use of the metadata structure provided by DataCite.
