Who can use this service ?
This service is targeted towards the research community to provide a scheme
for reliable citations of the data. Shortref.org is a simple solution to generate
easily citable links to your dynamic research contents (results of queries,
visualisation of data sets, interactive graphs, etc).
Unlike other services, we just not generate a short URL but a persistent identifier.
Automatically inherits all the features provided by the Handle System: reliable, scalable,
flexible, trusted, open architecture and transparent.
If the target link is broken?
With the power of metadata, even if the target link is broken or no more available,
a user can see the metadata. Just use the "noredirec" parameter in the
URL and we will display the associated metadata.
