If you have unpublished research data in ORDA and need to provide a journal publisher with a DOI for the underlying research data, you can do this without having to publish the data first.

1. Starting in My data, click to edit the article and enter the metadata screen and scroll down to 'Generate private link': 

 

2. Click on 'Reserve Digital Object Identifier’, at this point you will be offered a DOI. 
 
3. This will only become active when the item has been published, but the reserved DOI may be copied and used to create data access statements or data citations in research papers awaiting publication. 
 
4. For more information watch the tutorial video: https://youtu.be/qZh1byXTzlo
