Create DOIs

In addition to its own unique, persistent URLs, OSF offers DOIs for your public research. This help guide will walk you through how to generate DOIs for public projects and registrations.

DOIs for public projects point to the current version of the project. OSF does not support DOI versioning at this time.

First, navigate to your project or registration "Overview" page. If your project or registration is set to private, click the Make Public in the top right of the page.

Then click the Create DOI link below the title in the top left of the page.

The "Create identifiers" modal will appear.

Click Create to generate a DOI/ARK for your project or registration.

Your DOI and ARK identifier will be created and appear below the project title in the top left of the page.
