DataCite is a non-profit international organisation which provides a way for researchers to obtain credit and recognition for sharing their research data.
Through our platform you can create digital object identifiers (DOIs), a type of persistent identifier for your datasets, software and other types of research outputs such as grey literature and conference proceedings.
The British Library is a member of DataCite. We enable UK research organisations 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.
