Field Descriptions for Repository Settings
The Repository ID is a unique identifier for each Repository. It must contain uppercase letters or numbers and be of the form MEMBER.REPOSITORY, where MEMBER is the MEMBER ID of the parent organization and REPOSITORY is replaced by a short string representing the Repository.
Note: The Repository ID can't be modified.
Example of Repository ID
Member ID = VFRU
Repository = ZZSX19
The Type field refers to the platform where the content will be shared and is automatically designated as "Repository". Select "Periodical" from the drop-down menu if the DOIs registered will be assigned to publications and journals. Select "IGSN ID Catalog" from the drop-down menu if the the DOIs registered will be IGSN IDs assigned to material samples and features-of-interest.
Repositories with an IGSN ID Catalog Type cannot change Types after creation. Repositories with a Repository or Periodical Type cannot change to the IGSN ID Catalog Type after creation.
Link to the corresponding record in the re3data registry of research data repositories. This field is optional.

Select the language of the repository from the drop down list.

By default a DOI can point to any URL, indicated by an asterix * in the domain settings.
To limit the list of domains that can be used to register URLs for a DOI, enter one or more domains or subdomains, separated by a comma (no whitespace) e.g. datacite.org,example.org. You can use an asterisk to allow any subdomain (e.g., "*.example.org"). Make sure you are entering only the hostname, not a full URL starting with "http" or "https". Also keep in mind the "www" is a subdomain.
Add the type of Repository (e.g., Institutional).
The certificate held by the Repository (e.g., CoreTrustSeal). More information about certificates can be found here: RDA/WDS Certification of Digital Repositories IG.
