DataCite is an international organisation which aims to:
establish easier access to research data increase acceptance of research data as legitimate contributions in the scholarly record, and to support data archiving to permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study.
We have a Managing Agent (currently the German National Library of Science and Technology, TIB) along with regional Members.
