Rubric Assessments for Digital Object Identifier Readiness

Mandatory for DOI Minting

This evaluation tests for the existence of a creator, title, publication date and publisher in the metadata record and provides a preview of the content. If these values already exist in the metadata then we can automatically mint a DOI from the metadata content. The content used to mint a DOI should be the same as the content in the metadata record.

Mandatory for Citation

This evaluation tests for the existence of a creator, title, publication date, publisher and DOI in the metadata record and provides a preview of the content. If these values exist in the metadata then we can automatically generate a recommended citation from the metadata content.

Creator. (publicationYear). Title. Publisher. DOI.

Mandatory for Landing Page

This evaluation tests for the existence of all the fields required to provide a useful and meaningful DOI landing page.

Recommended for Landing Page

This evaluation tests for the existence of all the fields recommended to provide an even more useful and meaningful landing page.

Use Limitations - These data depict the elevations at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. Any conclusions drawn from analysis of this information are not the responsibility of NOAA or any of its partners. These data are NOT to be used for navigational purposes.
