DataCite Metadata Schema
A set of mandatory metadata that must be registered with the DataCite Metadata Store when minting a DOI persistent identifier for a dataset. The domain-agnostic properties were chosen for their ability to aid in accurate and consistent identification of data for citation and retrieval purposes.
The scheme is maintained by the DataCite Metadata Working Group in consultation with DataCite members and under the guidance of the DataCite Board.
