Import of Mendeley datasets with doi does not work!

tobias w. shared this question 3 years ago


I am trying to import on "Mendeley Data" published datasets. I published these datasets by myself to cite them in a paper. Therefore I got two DOI:

DOI: 10.17632/kj6y3thft3.1

DOI: 10.17632/tth54gkfd7.1

However the import does not work manually or with citavi picker. The following error message is displayed:

"Für dieses Kriterium wurden keine Resultate gefunden." GER

"No results were found for this criterion." ENG

Any suggestions??

Thanks and Cheers, Tobias

Dear Tobias,

Thank you for your message.

Citavi uses DataCite and Crossref to download DOI metadata.

In Mendeley Data's FAQs, DataCite is mentioned: "Mendeley Data assigns a provisional DOI to draft datasets. The issuing of a permanent DOI for Mendeley Data submitted datasets is carried out by the British Library via DataCite."

Your DOIs have probably not been listed yet at DataCite. Today, the metadata from DataCite was imported in Citavi.

Kind regards,
