The CSIRO Data Access Portal will now issue a DOI for restricted data and software collections.

A recent change to the DAP has enabled DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) to be issued for data and software collections where the associated files cannot yet be made public, so long as the metadata about the collection can be made public.

In the past both the metadata and the files needed to be publicly available.

This change will enable a researcher to have a DOI when:

Embargos can be automatically applied to make the data public at a later date without changing the DOI.
