Dataset records capture information about one or more database records or collections.

When registering datasets, DO:

  • register a DOI (or include a registered DOI) for a parent database - datasets must be registered as part of a collection
  • include all relevant funding, license, and relationship metadata
  • include all contributors
  • include relevant dates (supported date types are creation, publication, and update dates)
  • provide description, format, and citation metadata

Review our Datasets Markup Guide for XML and metadata help.
