ARDC Handle Service

The ARDC Handle Service enables Australian organisations and researchers to mint and manage persistent identifiers for situations where a DOI is not appropriate or unable to be created.


The ARDC RAID Service enables Australian Research organisations to mint and manage persistent identifiers for research projects and activities.


Zenodo is a general purpose repository that enables researchers, scientists, projects and institutions to share, preserve and showcase multidisciplinary research results (data, software and publications) that are not part of the existing institutional or subject-based repositories of the research communities. It is founded in the trustworthy CERN data centre.

Identifiers.org Central Registry

The Identifiers.org Central Registry service provides a centralized directory of Compact Identifiers. This information is used by the Identifiers.org Resolution Service, which provides consistent access to life science data using Compact Identifiers. Compact Identifiers consist of an assigned unique prefix and a local provider designated accession number (prefix:accession). The Identifiers.org Registry also makes it possible for review and curation of its information.

Crossref Metadata Plus

Metadata Plus gives you enhanced access to all supported Crossref APIs, guarantees service levels and support, and additional features such as snapshots and priority service/rate limits. To use Metadata Plus, an optional paid-for service, you do not need to be a Crossref member.


INSPIRE is a trusted community hub that helps researchers to share and find accurate scholarly information in high energy physics.

DataCite Search

DataCite search is a web interface where you can explore the complete collection of publicly available DataCite DOIs. You can search, filter, cite results, push them to your ORCID profile, and more.

DataCite DOI Registration Service

In order to create new DOIs and assign them to your content, it is necessary to become a DataCite member or work with one of the current members. Through the Fabrica web interface or of the DataCite APIs (REST, MDS, or EZ API) you will be able to submit a DOI name, a metadata description following the DataCite Metadata Schema and an URL for the object described by DOI metadata. Once created, information about this...

DataCite Profiles Service

DataCite Profiles integrates DataCite services from a user’s perspective and provides tools for personal use. In particular, it is a key piece of integration with ORCID, where researchers can connect their profiles and automatically update their ORCID record when any of their works with a DataCite DOI include their ORCID ID in the metadata.

The PID Forum

, &
The PID Forum is a global information and discussion platform about persistent identifiers (PIDs). The PID Forum aims to bring together the various communities working with PIDs in the research world. It’s a virtual place to share best practices, announce events, ask questions and have discussions about PIDs. The PID Forum was initiated by the FREYA project which is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 777523.

Crossref Content Registration

Content registration allows members to register and update metadata via machine or human interfaces. When you join Crossref as a member you are issued a DOI prefix. You combine this with a suffix of your choice to create a DOI, which becomes active once registered with Crossref. Content registration allows members to register a DOI and deposit or update its associated metadata, via machine or human interfaces.

DataCite Usage Reports API

The DataCite Usage Reports API allows repositories to deposit data usage metrics with DataCite that are made available via the DataCite REST and GraphQL APIs. These usage reports need to follow the COUNTER Code of Practice for Research Data, and the SUSHI protocol for reporting.


The Crossmark button gives readers quick and easy access to the current status of an item of content, including any corrections, retractions, or updates to that record. Research doesn’t stand still: even after publication, articles can be updated with supplementary data or corrections. It’s important to know if the content being cited has been updated, corrected, or retracted - and that’s the assurance that publishers can offer readers by using Crossmark. It’s a standardized button,...

CERN Open Data Portal

The CERN Open Data portal hosts more than two petabytes of collision, simulated and derived datasets, accompanied with configuration files, documentation, virtual machines and runnable analysis examples that were released into the public domain by the LHC and other particle physics related experiments.

Registry of Research Data Repositories (re3data)

, , , &
re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. It presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. re3data.org promotes a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data.


The ARDC IGSN Service enables Australian researchers to mint and manage International Geo Sample Number (IGSN) identifiers for their research samples


HEPData is a unique open-access repository for publication-related data in the field of High-Energy Physics with a long history going back to the 1970s. It currently comprises the data points from plots and tables related to several thousand publications including those from the Large Hadron Collider. The HEPData service is operated by Durham University (UK) in partnership with CERN (Switzerland).

NARCIS - National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System

NARCIS aggregates research information metadata in the Netherlands. Within NARCIS different content types (publications, datasets, research projects, researchers and research organisations) are connected by persistent identifiers (PIDs) and by linking these items NARCIS shows research in context.

Identifiers.org Resolution Services

The Identifiers.org Resolution Service provides consistent access to life science data using Compact Identifiers. Compact Identifiers consist of an assigned unique prefix and a local provider designated accession number (prefix:accession). The resolving location of Compact Identifiers is determined using information that is stored in the Identifiers.org Registry.

DataCite Statistics

DataCite provides statistics for both DOI registrations and DOI resolutions, filtered by Member, Repository or Prefix via our DataCite Statistics service. Registration statistics relate to datasets that have been uploaded and received a DataCite DOI, while resolution statistics provide information on how often a DOI has been used to access a dataset.


ORCID provides an open registry of persistent identifiers for individuals. These identifiers can be used in all stages of the research process and interconnected with other identifiers (for research production, institutions, funders, etc.).

DOI Citation Formatter

, , , , &
The DOI Citation Formatter is a service created in collaboration with Crossref, mEDRA, ISTIC, JaLC, and KISTI. It provides a simple interface to extract metadata automatically from a DOI and build a full citation. It supports more than 5,000 different citation styles in 45 different languages, using the Citation Style Language.

DataCite-ORCID Integration

DataCite Search & Link and Auto-Update services let researchers search the DataCite Metadata Store to find your research datasets, images, and other works, and link them to an ORCID record. Researchers can also give DataCite permission to automatically add newly published works with a DataCite DOI that contains their ORCID identifier to their ORCID record.


ORCID offers APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that allow organizations to connect with individual users’ ORCID records.


The information system PANGAEA is operated as an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research. The system guarantees long-term availability of its content through a commitment of the hosting institutions. Most of the data are freely available and can be used under the terms of the license mentioned on the data set description. A few password protected data sets are under moratorium from ongoing projects. The description...
