Project Description

Constellation is a digital object identifier (DOI) based science network for supercomputing data. Constellation makes it possible for OLCF researchers to obtain DOIs for large data collections by tying them together with the associated resources and processes that went into the production of the data (e.g., jobs, collaborators, projects), using a scalable database. It also allows the annotation of the scientific conduct with rich metadata, and enables the cataloging and publishing of the artifacts for open access, aiding in scalable data discovery. OLCF users can use the DOI service to publish datasets even before the publication of the paper, and retain key data even after project expiration. From a center standpoint, DOIs enable the stewardship of data, and better management of the scratch and archival storage.
