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 issued to public projects or public registrations.

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

Go to your public project, component, or registration.

Under the project description, click Create DOI/ARK.

The "Create identifiers" modal will appear.

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

The "Create identifiers" Modal

You will now see your new DOI and ARK identifier under the project, component, or registration description.
