Hi Data Management expert chaps,

Laura Newman and I went to an interesting talk yesterday about Open
Data in academic contexts at Cambridge University.

One of the things that was suggested to incentivise sharing and
production of resources was to increase recognition of Datasets and
digital materials as equal in value to a written paper.

It was suggested that promoting the use of DOIs (http://www.doi.org/)
may be one way to make datasets traceable, distinguishable and hence -

Is this something worth looking into further as part of CKAN, how we
can support people in this?

Apologies if this has already been raised!
