On DOI's and Data

I am going to waste a great title on a boring post. One of my pie-in-the-sky hopes is to advance to the point where datasets within the Research Gateway are assigned Digital Object Identifiers (DOI). I know this would help to establish legitimacy in the eyes of our researchers but, honestly, I do not know much about the underpinnings of the DOI system. Here are a few pointers:

There is a website DOI but you are better off starting at the Wikipedia page.

DataCite is a DOI service specifically for datasets (Wikipedia page).

If a DOI is a unique identifier then, my understanding is that, the Handle System makes sure the DOI points to the right place (Wikipedia page).

Questions to answer:

Q: Is the University of Michigan associated with DataCite at all? Is DeepBlue?

Yes, ICPSR is a member of DataCite and contributed datasets receive a DOI. I don't think DeepBlue has this capability but I asked them anyways. They should.

How complicated and expensive would an automated DOI registration system be?

How complicated and expensive would a manual DOI registration system be?
