DataCite Canada Consortium Membership Update

With final pricing for the DataCite Canada Consortium now established, the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) and CARL Portage are pleased to announce that service fees for 2020 can be fully covered by Portage’s RDM Directed Funding administered through CANARIE as one-time transition funding. Additionally, as previously indicated, the National Research Council (NRC) has committed to paying the 2020 member fee for the consortium. As a result, DataCite Canada Consortium members will have no fees for their participation in 2020. 

As part of DataCite’s new strategic direction for long-term sustainability, members of the Datacite Canada Consortium who were registered under the NRC will have new accounts created and their DOIs transferred. This transfer process is anticipated to take place during the week of February 24th-28th. Members have been notified and given further details pertaining to next steps.

In order to facilitate a smooth transition, CRKN is holding a webinar with DataCite to explain the transfer process and answer any questions.
