DaSCH supports Persistent Identifiers using Archival Resource Key (ARK)

DaSCH now supports an accepted, widely used standard for persistent identifiers. It uses the ARK framework. The prefix 72163 has been assigned to the DaSCH. A persistent identifier looks like this:

As a peculiarity ARK allows modifiers to select specific versions of a resource. We use the creation date of the persistent link as timestamp modifier. All data already hosted by DaSCH will receive a persistent identifier in the coming weeks.
