Digital Object Identifier (DOI) Creation Tool

This service allows USGS personnel to assign globally unique, persistent, and resolvable identifiers, registered with DataCite, to USGS-funded data products. Included as part of the formal citation for the data release, a data DOI can be cited by subsequent users of the data, and thus facilitate credit for, and understanding of, data reuse.
