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.
