In order to ensure replicable data access:
- Choose a broadly utilized Data Identification Standard based on specific user community practices or preferences
- Consistently apply the standard
- Maintain the linkage
- Participate in implementing infrastructure for consistent access to the resources referenced by the Identifier
Digital objects should utilize a standard, stable identifier to access a specific data product to ensure data consistency among analyses that use the “same” data product.
