DataCite EZ API Guide


The DataCite EZ API has been discontinued.

Please use our DataCite REST API, which is DataCite's primary API. The DataCite REST API allows any user to retrieve, query and browse DataCite DOI metadata records. DataCite Repositories can register DOIs and DataCite Members can manage Repositories and prefixes via the REST API using their credentials.

You can follow DataCite REST API Guide to start transitioning to using our REST API. If you have test accounts set up, those credentials can be used to test your implementation via Please note this service should only be used for testing purposes and should not be integrated with your production workflows. If you have any questions or issues transitioning to our REST API please reach out to us via mailto:[email protected].
