Assign a DOI

A DOI, Digital Object Identifier, can be assigned to research data, results, or publications as an unique identifier for these data. A DOI makes your research easy to find and to cite for other researchers throughout the world.

Most publishers are assigning DOIs to scientific publications, but DOIs can also be assigned to data sets via the DataCite system.

You will find more on the use of DOIs at DTU on DTU Inside.
