DataCite Netherlands

TU Delft Library is a founding member of DataCite and consortium leader of the TU Delft DOI Consortium.

TU Delft Library has established DataCite Netherlands to serve as a central research dataset registration service that helps Dutch research organizations to register DOIs for scientific resources.


As part of this role, DataCite Netherlands:

  • Provides access to DataCite’s infrastructure and assigns DOIs
  • Provides a prefix unique to your repository
  • Provides local support to Dutch data centres and research organizations
  • Contributes to the ongoing development of DataCite services and resources
  • Promotes the value of citation and the use of digital object identifiers for datasets

Read below how you can register DOIs as a Dutch scientific institution such as a research institute, library or university faculty that has its own infrastructure for storing objects.
