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.

Distribution URL Description(s) - Provides information on the tsunami source including date, time, event location, magnitude of the phenomenon, maximum wave height, and socio-economic information such as the total number of fatalities and dollar damage estimates if available. If the tsunami source was an earthquake or volcanic eruption, it is flagged and linked to the related database.

- Provides information on locations where tsunami waves were observed by eyewitnesses, post-tsunami field surveys, tide gauges, or deep ocean sensors. Includes the maximum wave height, inundation distance, and number of fatalities or dollar damage estimates at the specific location if available.

- Tsunami source and runup locations, significant earthquake epicenters, significant volcanic eruption locations.

- Tsunami source and runup locations, significant earthquake epicenters, significant volcanic eruption locations.
