DataCite Canada Services

Adding value to your research through data registration

DataCite Canada's data registration service provides Canadian data centres and libraries with a mechanism for registering research data and assigning digital object identifiers (DOIs) to them.

DOIs help data producers take control of the management of their research, share, get credit for it and build their reputation through data citations. DOIs also make research data easier to access, reuse and verify, thereby making it easier to build on previous work, conduct new research and avoid duplicating already existing work.

Our data registration service requires organizations to first register for an account. To find out how, see our Information for Prospective Clients section.

DataCite Canada's services are offered in cooperation with DataCite, an international consortium of national-scale libraries and research organizations committed to increasing access to research data on the Internet. DataCite Canada is DataCite's DOI allocation agent for Canada.
