In #6530 and #6440, we added features to update DOI registrations, but we still have many originally assigned DOIs that redirect to the raw EML document rather than our landing page for a data set. We need to fix all of the /AA/ DOI registrations in the KNB and ensure they point to the right View service page. For DOIs for metadata, that would be the associated /view url for that DOI. For data files and resource maps, its to the view for the associated metadata. E.g.,

Also, when a user updates metadata for a package (but doesn't change the data), the DOI redirect for the data will need to be updated to point to the new metadata. Let's verify that this is happening automatically in Metacat.

#1 Updated by Lauren Walker about 6 years ago

MetacatUI 1.7.0 will redirect to the associated metadata view for any given data pid. So managing the EZID registrations for those DOI's, at least, is unnecessary.

  • Priority changed from Normal to High

Megan Force at Thompson Reuters is reporting our old DOIs still point to XML representations of the metadata rather than the #view landing page.

  • Status changed from New to In Progress

I was able to use our Metacat admin tool to update an example DOI - doi:10.5063/AA/dpennington.338.2 now points to the #view page.
Running the update routine for all EML format ids now.

#4 Updated by ben leinfelder over 5 years ago

Ran the DOI updater for EML 2.0.0, 2.0.1, 2.1.0, and 2.1.1 formats. All EML DOIs should be resolving to the #view endpoint now.
