  • Makes research more discoverable and helps track scholarly impact.
  • Can be assigned to any entity for use online including images, data and data sets, books, book chapters, research reports, and dissertations.
  • Help level the playing field between prestigious journal articles and other research outputs, artifacts and resources by making research more discoverable, providing a persistent home and helping track scholarly impact.
