In addition we would be interested by the ability to use ARK identifiers 
https://wiki.ucop.edu/display/Curation/ARK. They fulfill the same kind of 
need described by Lucy but also offer a qualifier mechanism which could be 
useful if one wants to display a map, csv data or rdf data depending on 
the request made by the user. 
The University of California Curation Center has set up an API to ease the 
creation and managment of unique and persistent identifiers

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!
