Hi all,

DataCite has just released the newest version of their metadata schema, version 4.4: https://schema.datacite.org/meta/kernel-4.4/ - on this page you can see the details of how 4.4 is different from the previous version 4.3. The most exciting aspect in my opinion is the addition of several new resource types, including:

  *   Book
  *   BookChapter
  *   ComputationalNotebook
  *   ConferencePaper
  *   ConferenceProceeding
  *   Dissertation
  *   Journal
  *   JournalArticle
  *   OutputsManagementPlan
  *   PeerReview
  *   Preprint
  *   Report
  *   Standard

You can view the full schema and definitions in the PDF: https://schema.datacite.org/meta/kernel-4.4/doc/DataCite-MetadataKernel_v4.4.pdf. We will talk about these changes at our community call next week (April 7: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zos6w5cYUtBmkyDRJH-7D-QRzpS-fweRbvGyi352s2A/edit?usp=sharing). In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to reply to this message or contact me directly.
