DataCite is a membership and community organization and we encourage involvement from people that share our vision. To help guide and support our growth and ongoing development, DataCite has two Steering Groups—the Services and Technology Steering Group (STSG) and the Community Engagement Steering Group (CESG) —and a Metadata Working Group (WG). These groups provide a venue for participation by interested community members and help us with priority setting and identify strategies related to our services, metadata, and outreach.
