SDR Deposit of the Month: Endangered sharks of Peru and the ban to save them

November 4, 2018
by Hannah Frost

Note to our readers: The Stanford Digital Repository team is reviving our popular blog series in order to highlight some of the terrific content deposited by our community on a regular basis. Be on the lookout for monthly posts!

When Biology student Julia Grace Mason requested a DOI from the SDR team for her recent dataset deposit, I was pleased to see continued uptake of our DOI service launched earlier this year with Stanford Libraries' new membership to DataCite.  This service is of growing importance to Stanford’s publishing researchers!  While preparing the metadata for the DOI, I had the opportunity to check out what her research is all about. If you are interested in sharks, Peru, ecology, and qualitative-quantitative hybrid research methods, you will agree this work is impressive!
