Only objects intended to be cited in a publication and remain available for the long term can be assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

  • If you are publishing a research paper, your publisher should assign a DOI to the paper as part of their publication process.

  • For datasets, research software code and other research outputs, you can obtain a DOI by depositing in ORDA, or one of a number of other discipline specific and general-purpose research data repositories.

 

For more guidance on obtaining DOIs see our webpage at https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/library/rdm/dois.
