EDI’s May 2020 update has been sent to our email subscribers. The information is also available here.

The EDI technical team recently modified the view of user contributed journal citations associated with a specific version of a data package so that the citation is now displayed on all versions of the data package, not just the version for which the citation is relevant. This enhancement allows users who browse the data package metadata landing page to see all citations related to data package series regardless of what version of the data package they are viewing. User contributed journal citations provide an easy way for the author of a data paper (or others) to increase the impact factor of the data package by directly linking the published manuscript to the supporting data package found in the EDI data repository. In fact, older manuscripts that utilize an EDI data package may be added to the list of journal citations even if the data package DOI was not available at the time of publication. We are currently exploring options for updating the DataCite DOI metadata of the data package with these citations so that downstream services may take advantage of this crowd-sourced information.
For an example, check out the “Journal Citations” for this data package on the EDI repository landing page:
Beaufort Lagoon Ecosystems LTER and V. Lougheed. 2020. Carbon flux from aquatic ecosystems of the Arctic Coastal Plain along the Beaufort Sea, Alaska, 2010-2018 ver 7. Environmental Data Initiative. https://doi.org/10.6073/pasta/e6c261fbd143e720af5a46a9a131a616. Accessed 2020-05-22.
We’d like your feedback on a new EMLassemblyline feature that supports annotation of both new and existing EML documents. Continue reading “RFC: Annotating EML with the EMLassemblyline R package”
Dear EDI user,
Just a short note reassuring you that operations of the EDI data repository will continue as normal during this COVID-19 health crisis. All systems are monitored remotely by our technical team through our system dashboard, and we are alerted to any infrastructure faults by automated notifications. In the event of a hardware issue that does require onsite presence, we will do our best to address any problems as expeditiously as possible given current health and safety restrictions in place by the State of New Mexico. We thank you for your continued support and patience during these extraordinary times. Comments or questions may be directed to email@example.com.
The EDI technical team
