Achieving FAIRness with EDP-portal

DOI and citation improvements in metadata of EDP-portal


EDP-portal is the access point to the Environmental Data Platform of Eurac Research since 2021 to achieve FAIRness of our datasets. It allows to publish data and metadata and provides APIs and web services for data access. In the last 2 years the EDP improved the findability and accessibility of the data collected throughout the curation of metadata that was improved with the DOI registration for datasets. The result is a higher metadata quality where the final user can easily find how to properly cite datasets with a persistent identifier. The portal itself and main data repositories are registered in FAIR-sharing portal with their own DOI. The SW components of the EDP are totally based on open source projects.
