SMIR signed an agreement with a DOI Registration Authority (ETH Zurich) to enable attaching a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to any dataset published on the database. Building and curating data collections is difficult and time consuming. This permanent identifier will increase the visibility of the work by making reference to your datasets easy. Furthermore, the DOI published on SMIR are automatically registered on DataCite – a non-profit website, where these datasets are accessible for search based on their meta-information.

A DOI identifies an object permanently, even if the object changes its location, its owner or other characteristics. The DOI does this through redirection, using the Handle system.
