Repository Dashboard

When Repositories log in to Fabrica, they are presented with the Fabrica dashboard. The dashboard is the central hub for all activities related to DataCite's DOI Registration Service. From the dashboard, Repositories can manage Settings and DOIs, and view a list of their available Prefixes.

Info

The Info page is the first page presented to Repositories after login and gives an overview of account information and includes the name of the Repository, the "Role: Repository" (indicating the type of account), the total number of DOIs and the Create DOI button. Repositories can also view the total number of DOIs by year by hovering over the graph.

Settings

The Settings tab contains the Repository ID, Alternate Name, Description, Service Contact, System Email, URL of the repository, Language, Repository Type, and Certificate. Information on when the record was created and last updated is in the lower left-hand corner of the sidebar and the Create DOI button is on the top left.

From the Settings tab, you can reset the Repository password, update Repository settings, or delete the Repository.

Prefixes

The DOI prefix is used as a namespace so DOIs are globally unique without requiring global coordination for each new identifier. All DOI prefixes are numbers without any semantic meaning. The Prefixes tab displays the prefix assigned to the Repository. The Create DOI button is on the top left.

📘

We recommend one prefix per Repository. Request a new Repository account if a new prefix is required.

DOIs

The DOIs tab lists all the DOIs registered by the Repository. Repositories can filter DOIs using the facets by State, Resource Type, Year Created and Year registered. Repositories can also use the search bar to retrieve an individual DOI.

2584

From the DOIs tab, Repositories can create a DOI via a form, create a DOI via file upload, update a DOI, or delete a Draft.

Export DOI Metadata

On the left of the DOIs tab is the Export DOI Metadata button. Click here to export a CSV file containing the basic metadata of the DOIs in the list.
