About DataCite

DataCite makes research better by enabling people to find, share, use and cite data. We are a leading global membership organization offering reliable persistent data identification. We engage stakeholders including researchers, scholars, data centers, libraries, publishers, and funders through advocacy, guidance, and services.

By creating an organization of people, technology and guidelines to support data sharing, advocacy and services, DataCite will accelerate data sharing, use and re-use and stimulate new research. In so doing, DataCite will help transform scholarship and the role of data in our society.

Data are essential building blocks of scholarship and research in the sciences, medical sciences, social sciences and humanities. Researchers and scholars recognize the potential for increasing collaboration and synthesis when data are archived, published and shared, forging the possibility for new discoveries built upon the work of others.

DataCite was founded in 2009 to support researchers by enabling them to identify, locate, access and cite research datasets with confidence. Its original seven members, representing Europe, North America and Australia, recognised the growing need to link published research with the data that underlies it. Articles have long benefited from robust services and infrastructure, making them easy to find, access and preserve as part of the scientific record. By linking research to its data, we will provide datasets with this level of robustness and strong infrastructure.

By providing persistent identification for data, DataCite offers the means to connect a published article with the underlying data.


Our Vision: Connecting research, identifying knowledge.

Our Mission: DataCite’s mission is to be the world's leading provider of persistent identifiers for research. Through our portfolio of services, we provide the means to create, find, cite, connect, and use research. We seek to create value and develop community-driven, innovative, open, integrated, useable, and sustainable services for research.

What we do: DataCite is a leading global non-profit organisation that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data and other research outputs. Organizations within the research community join DataCite as members to be able to assign DOIs to all their research outputs. This way, their outputs become discoverable and associated metadata is made available to the community. DataCite then develops additional services to improve the DOI management experience, making it easier for our members to connect and share their DOIs with the broader research ecosystem and to assess the use of their DOIs within that ecosystem.

DataCite is an active participant in the research community and promotes data sharing and citation through community-building efforts and outreach activities.
