DataCite provides provides a way for researchers to obtain credit and recognition for sharing their research data. This is built on the use of digital object identifiers (DOIs) to identify and link to datasets with a unique and persistent identifier.

The British Library is a member of DataCite. We enable the UK to take advantage of DataCite's services, as well as building a community around a common standard for identifying data.

If you are new to DataCite and want to find out more about how to use it, please see our overview.
