Create a DOI via File Upload

The Create DOI button appears on the top left of all the tabs on the Repository dashboard. Hover over the Create DOI button and then click File Upload.


The DOI name appears at the top of the page. The suffix is automatically generated (this is the recommended option, but it can be edited). For detailed explanations of each field, see Field Descriptions for the File Upload Screen.


Once you've entered the metadata, either by pasting it into the file upload window or by clicking the Upload File button click the Create DOI button at the bottom of the page. Your DOI will be saved in Fabrica, and the record page of the DOI will be displayed.
