General

University employees can request DOIs for citable objects (research data, etc.) archived in Phaidra 1. The assigned DOI will be transferred to the object record metadata in question.

What is a DOI?

A DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is a unique and citable digital identifier in form of an alphanumeric string and remains permanently linked to the assigned object. A resolver 2 directs users to the objects location or landingpage providing its metadata and access options. Thus, a DOI makes it easier to find, identify and cite the related object.

Which requirements have to be met for assigning a DOI to an object?

  • The object must be archived in Phaidra
  • No DOI has been assigned to the object yet
  • The object creator has to be an university employee

For further requirements please consult our policy 3 (only available in german)

How to receive a DOI for my object?

The DOI allocation is free of charge and handled by the university library. To request a DOI please use the DOI-request form 4.

Can I request a DOI before uploading the object in Phaidra?

Yes, you can request a DOI before uploading the object in Phaidra. Please consult the university library via e-mail!
