Accessibility Achievements

The Accessibility Achievements in DataCite Commons provide information about the openness of a researcher’s works based on the license information in the DOI metadata. The Accessibility Achievements appear in the researcher profile in DataCite Commons.

The DOIs are linked to the profiles based on the ORCID of the researcher.

Each achievement has a badge. The badges are allocated based on the information held in the metadata shared by the repository where the researcher's content is deposited. The license information is contained in property 16 "rights" of the DataCite Metadata Schema:

<rightsList>
    <rights xml:lang="en-US" schemeURI="https://spdx.org/licenses/" rightsIdentifierScheme="SPDX" rightsIdentifier="CC0 1.0" rightsURI="https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/" />
