ready Digital Object Identifier

Abbreviation: DOI


General Information
The digital object identifier (DOI) system originated in a joint initiative of three trade associations in the publishing industry (International Publishers Association; International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers; Association of American Publishers). The system was announced at the Frankfurt Book Fair 1997. The International DOI® Foundation (IDF) was created to develop and manage the DOI system, also in 1997. The DOI system was adopted as International Standard ISO 26324 in 2012. The DOI system implements the Handle System and adds a number of new features. The DOI system provides an infrastructure for persistent unique identification of objects of any type. The DOI system is designed to work over the Internet. A DOI name is permanently assigned to an object to provide a resolvable persistent network link to current information about that object, including where the object, or information about it, can be found on the Internet. While information about an object can change over time, its DOI name will not change. A DOI name can be resolved within the DOI system to values of one or more types of data relating to the object identified by that DOI name, such as a URL, an e-mail address, other identifiers and descriptive metadata. The DOI system enables the construction of automated services and transactions. Applications of the DOI system include but are not limited to managing information and documentation location and access; managing metadata; facilitating electronic transactions; persistent unique identification of any form of any data; and commercial and non-commercial transactions. The content of an object associated with a DOI name is described unambiguously by DOI metadata, based on a structured extensible data model that enables the object to be associated with metadata of any desired degree of precision and granularity to support description and services. The data model supports interoperability between DOI applications. The scope of the DOI system is not defined by reference to the type of content (format, etc.) of the referent, but by reference to the functionalities it provides and the context of use. The DOI system provides, within networks of DOI applications, for unique identification, persistence, resolution, metadata and semantic interoperability.

Implementing Databases (10)
figshare
figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.

Dryad
DataDryad.org is a nonprofit, curated general-purpose repository that makes the data underlying scientific publications discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad has integrated data submission for a growing list of journals; submission of data from other publications is also welcome.

PANGAEA - Data Publisher for Earth and Environmental Science
The information system PANGAEA is operated as an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research. PANGAEA is a member of the ICSU World Data System (WDS).

Zenodo
Generalist research data repository built and developed by OpenAIRE and CERN, to ensure that everyone can join in Open Science.

Harvard Dataverse
Harvard Dataverse is a research data repository running on the open source web application Dataverse. Harvard Dataverse is fully open to the public, and allows upload and browsing of data from all fields of research. Dataverse allows users to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others' work more easily. Researchers, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive academic credit and web visibility.

4TU.Centre for Research Data
4TU.Centre for Research Data (short: 4TU.ResearchData) was started in 2008 as an initiative of the three technical universities in the Netherlands – Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, and the University of Twente. The ambition was, and still is, to create and maintain a national state-of-the-art facility for storing and preserving science and engineering research data and for making those data openly accessible. The data archive has been fully operational since 2010 and it has evolved to become a trusted and certified repository for science and engineering. By publishing data-sets via 4TU.ResearchData you will make your data FAIR. Every single data-set is assigned a DOI and metadata (F), the archive is accessible 24/7 online worldwide via https protocol (A), the data-files adhere to community and preservation standards (I), and a readme-file and usage license is provided for every data-set (R). This archive is accessible and usable for any researcher from the science and engineering disciplines. Please visit our website for more details.

Norwegian Centre for Research Data
The Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD) is one of the largest archives for research data of its kind and provides data to researchers and students in Norway and abroad. Additionally, the NSD is a resource centre which assists researchers with regard to data gathering, data analysis, and issues of methodology, privacy and research ethics. The NSD is a certified archive (certified with the Core Trust Seal), and a member of DataCite. The NSD is also the data processor, data distributor and archive for the ESS – European Social Survey (http://www.europeansocialsurvey.org). The NSD is the Norwegian Service Provider for CESSDA (http://cessda.eu)

Environmental Data Portal
EnviDat is a unified and managed access portal for data from WSL and SLF. EnviDat is designed as a portal to publish, connect and search across existing data but is not intended to become a large data centre hosting original data. While sharing of data is centrally facilitated, data management remains decentralised and the know-how and responsibility to curate research data remains with the original data providers.

CyVerse Data Common Repository
The Data Commons provides services to manage, organize, preserve, publish, discover, and reuse data. Using our pipelines, you can easily publish data to the NCBI or directly to the CyVerse Data Commons. CyVerse Curated Data are stable and have DOIs. Community Released Data are maintained by community members and may not be permanent.

Imperial College Research Data Repository
A lightweight digital repository for data based on the concepts of collections of filesets. Both the collection and the fileset are assigned a DOI by the DataCite organisation which can be quoted in articles
