Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities

  • Joan Starr, EZID’s Service Manager, attended DataCite’s annual Strategy Meeting and General Assembly where she gave a presentation on the Force11 Software Citation Principles. Software and data differ from one another in several key respects, and these differences impact a number of citation-related decisions. The slides are available on EZID’s Media page: http://ezid.cdlib.org/learn/#06.
  • In response to more stringent browser security requirements, and with the approval of EZID clients, EZID implemented HTTPS across its website on April 30th. Perhaps most visibly, clients using up-to-date browsers will no longer see a warning message at the EZID login.

EZID Service Description
EZID (easy-eye-dee) is a production service that gives researchers the ability to create and manage long-term identifiers so that they can to track usage, get credit for their work, share their data, and have the data reused for additional research. As a result, EZID identifiers also make it possible to increase citations, to build on previous work, to conduct new research, and avoid duplicating previous efforts.
