Delete a Draft DOI

It is possible to delete a Draft DOI. First, select the Draft DOI you would like to delete from the list of DOIs on the DOIs tab in the Repository dashboard.

Once the DOI is selected, on the DOI record screen, click the Delete DOI button. Note: The Delete DOI button is only available for Draft DOIs. Registered and Findable DOIs cannot be deleted.

You will be asked to confirm DOI deletion by re-entering the DOI to be deleted. You may either type or cut and paste the DOI into the provided field. Click the Delete button to finalize deletion. DOI deletion cannot be undone.
