ODIN – ORCID and DataCite Interoperability Network is a two year project which started in September 2012, funded by the European Commission’s ‘Coordination and Support Action’ under the FP7 Programme (Seventh Framework Programme).
ODIN aims to build on the success of ORCID and DataCite initiatives to identify data sets and scientists, and connect them across multiple services and infrastructures for academics, scholars and researchers information sharing and publishing. Its mission is to reduce technical, cultural and logistical barriers to the accessibility, attribution and trust of data.
The issues it will address are the following:
- Data object referencing
- Use and re-use tracking
- Links between a data object, subsets, articles, rights statements and every person involved in its life-cycle
