Overview

Dryad assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to each Dryad Data Package and Data File. These persistent identifiers provide an easy way to cite and access data deposited in the Dryad Data Repository. Dryad registers its DOIs and their associated metadata through the DataCite service and they are resolvable through the DOI.org system.

Instructions

On submission to Dryad, the author will receive an email that informs the submitter that a DOI will be assigned on the data package's acceptance into Dryad. The text of this email will be:

Subject: Dryad: Submission Approved and Archived

[This text is currently being developed]

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

The Dryad Team

Once the Dryad curator has reviewed and approved the submission, a second email will be sent. This email will include the DOI that the author can use to cite and reference the data package. The email sent will be:

Subject: Dryad: Submission Approved and Archived

Thank you for your recent submission to the Dryad repository titled "{TITLE}". Your data package has been archived into Dryad. Ensuring that the data package DOI is included in the published article will make readers aware that the data is available and allow them to find it. Most journals specify a particular location and format for such links to data in repositories.

Data deposited at Dryad: {DOI}

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

The Dryad Team

Dryad's page on recommended data citation practices details the use of the Dryad assigned DOIs.

Technical Documentation

Dryad DOIs conform to a published DOI Usage specification that defines how DOIs are used in Dryad. The technical details about how the Dryad DOI service mints, manages, and registers DOIs through DataCite and the California Digital Library's EZID service can be read on the Dryad Google Code wiki.
