An easier way to browse by subjects

This release introduces an enhanced subject browse interface available from the Research Data Australia home page and the top menu of every page. A hierarchical subject tree makes browsing for datasets in particular subject areas much more intuitive. Users can select an area of interest from the tree (or the home page) and narrow their focus by selecting and expanding each node.

MyDOI enhancement

As well as updating our DataCite schema version to the latest v3.1, we are also improving MyDOI. The introduction of a filter button makes searching for a minted DOI even easier. The new manual minting form is not only simpler but it is also used to edit or update a DOI. Users will be provided with an option to update a DOI either by editing the XML or editing the metadata field directly. In just a click of a button, users can now easily activate or deactivate a DOI.
