A number of benefits are afforded to investigators who use DigitalHub:
- A persistent, citable identifier (DOI) is assigned to all items deposited in DigitalHub
- Access metrics (views downloads, etc.) are available for deposited items
- Manage licensing with a wide range of rights statements
- Machine-readable metadata (descriptive “data about data”) enhances its discoverability
