We’re pleased to announce that the monthly CPRD GOLD and CPRD Aurum database releases are now being assigned a digital object identifier (DOI).
This means that database versions can be cited in research findings. Details about the release will be available on the CPRD website.
Using DOIs supports transparent, reproducible research and provides additional assurance of data provenance and data coverage.
DOIs will be included in the release notes and will link to information about the database version and how to cite the data. For example:
- CPRD GOLD January 2021 https://doi.org/10.11581/v8hp-qa82
- CPRD Aurum January 2021 https://doi.org/10.11581/d86m-gd03
In future, if you are using CPRD data that has a DOI, please cite this in any publications.
