Create DOIs and ARKs

In addition to its own unique, persistent URLs, the OSF offers DOIs and ARKs for your research.

DOIs and ARKs can be generated for public projects and registrations only.

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

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

Then click the Create DOI/ARK 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.
