University of Kurdistan, after concluding an official contract and membership in the International Consortium of DataCite, by allocating funds and specialized human resources in the form of setting up a DOI center, infrastructure and systems required to issue DOI code in order to maintain the scientific results of the country. Provided internally. The center issues DOI codes directly and directly, as soon as possible and at the lowest financial cost for the country's scientific products, including scientific articles, dissertations, books, patents and the like.
It is noteworthy that the establishment of the DVI International Middle East Consortium by Kurdistan University is based on the orders of the Supreme Leader and the overall strategy of the country regarding the development of national knowledge foundations, science leadership and becoming a center of scientific management in the region and the world based on national interest. And has provided the necessary arrangements for membership in universities and scientific-research centers of the country. The University of Kurdistan, while having full access to the International Consortium Database database and the independent issuance of digital object IDs, has provided the necessary electronic mechanism to maintain the research results of Iranian and Middle Eastern researchers in the country. This will be important in the near future as one of the main pillars and centers of the country in order to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze the production of science in Iran and the region in order to guide the scientific roadmap of the country. To this end, it is necessary for those research and scientific centers with a high volume of scientific productions that wish to receive the digital mark of the object for scientific productions, to officially declare their readiness to join the International Consortium of the Middle East. Also, for universities and institutes that require a small number of DOI codes per year, arrangements have been made to issue a dedicated code outside the consortium.
Datasite has been a world-leading nonprofit organization since 2009 providing DOIs for research data and other research output. Organizations within the research community join DataCite as members to be able to assign DOIs to all of their research outputs. In this way, their outputs become accessible and traceable, and related metadata becomes available to the public. DataCite then develops additional services to enhance the DOI management experience, making it easier for our members to connect and share their DOI with the broader research ecosystem and evaluate their use of that DOI in that ecosystem. DataCite is an active participant in the research community and promotes data sharing and citation through community-building efforts and information activities.
