Omeka is increasing being used by Australian universities as an option for researchers to store, manage, and publish their research data collections. We are used to more traditional institutional repositories that have features we feel are important to offer researchers. In particular we would like to be able to offer automatic generating of a DOI for each item and collection record (ideally also for exhibitions).
Has anyone been thinking of doing this?
Is there a plugin planned that would mint a DOI and add it to the record metadata, and to the citation field in the record?
We currently use Omeka Classic for our Library projects but would likely be looking at using Omeka.net or Omeka-S for individual researchers.
I would be interested to know how many other people are interested in this functionality and if it is on the Omeka roadmap.
