[MGI04-09] Recent activity of DOI-minting to solar-terrestrial physics data in Japan
Recognizing the importance of data citation, World Data Centers (WDCs) in Japan including WDC for Geomagnetism (Kyoto University) and WDC for Ionosphere and Space Weather (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) started discussion to mint DOI to their own database in August 2013. The discussion finds that Japan Link Center (JaLC) is a proper agency to register DOI-URL mapping, because JaLC aims at public information services to promote science and technology in Japan and it handles scientific and academic metadata and content from holders nationwide, including national institutes and universities. We develop a web-based system to register metadata with JaLC and to create landing pages of data, to which DOIs are mapped. The system can handle version of the landing pages when the data are updated. JaLC started a 1-year pilot program to mint DOI to the database from October 2014. We have been participating in the program, resulting in DOIs for the mesospheric wind velocity data observed with MF radar at Poker Flat, Alaska (doi:10.17591/55838dbd6c0ad) and the geomagnetic Dst index (doi:10.17593/14515-74000). These are the first practices of the DOI-minting to scientific data in Japan. One of these DOIs is even cited in a paper by Kinoshita et al. (2015), providing the first example of data citation in Japan.
We will present our activities of DOI-minting to solar-terrestrial physics data in Japan and discuss its future perspective.
