Some metadata updates or additions may be deposited separately from metadata deposits as resource deposits. Resource deposits use the resource-only schema (with the exception of stand-alone components which use the main deposit schema).
Metadata included in a resource deposit is added to the existing metadata record of an item. The resource deposit data does not need to be included in any bibliographic metadata updates.
Supported resource-only deposit types:
- URLs: A primary URL must be included in all DOI deposits. Additional URLs may be submitted as resource deposits, including:
Important: if your metadata includes text and data mining, Multiple Resolution, or as-crawled URLs, submitting an update (metadata or resource-only) will remove the existing non-primary URLs from your metadata. Any updates submitted must include all URL types you support (license, secondary, and as-crawled).
Uploading resource deposits
Resource deposits may only be submitted for existing Crossref DOIs. Deposits using the resource-only schema must be uploaded with type 'doDOICitUpload' for HTTPS POST (or 'DOI Resources' when using the system interface).
