DataCat Metadata Generator - DataCite Kernel 3.0
Use this form to generate metadata for your published research dataset. An xml document is generated on the right, as you fill in the fields on the left. If your dataset has not already had a DOI allocated and you wish to have a DataCite DOI allocated, all the mandatory element fields will need completing, (except for the 'DOI' element, of course). The more metadata elements that are provided, the more easily your data may be discovered, reused and cited. Click on the [?] symbol for more information about the metadata elements (from 'Using Dublin Core - The Elements' by Diane Hillmann).
When you have completed the form, click on 'Ready to Save' button, then click on the 'Click here to Save: metadata.xml' button and the xml file should download...unless you are using Internet Explorer or Safari - in which case you should click on the 'Select All' button, copy the highlighted text, paste into a blank Notepad or Wordpad document and save as a .xml file.
Please keep a copy of the metadata.xml in the same folder with your (digital) research data and send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org so we may register your data in the University of Sheffield Research Data Catalogue.
This tool is a modified form of the Datacite Metadata Generator created by Marcin Paluch.
