Hi Jonathan,
overall looks good to me, few comment on this statement: “There is a
mapping with DataCite schema (to assign a DOI to your instrument) and
ePIC This way, an instrument can be assigned with a DOI or a Handle.”
* ePIC and DataCite are two *implementations* of PIDINST schema,
DataCite requires a schema mapping and ePIC is a full PIDINST schema
* DataCite DOIs are Handles, too, and I believe ePIC IDs can be
resolved via
Cheers, m.
