Service Provider Software Integrations

Below is a list of software system integrations developed/supported by registered DataCite Service Providers. Registered Service Providers meet requirements and follow best practices to ensure that their integrations register DOIs correctly and support creation of high-quality metadata.

Other DataCite integrations exist, but their developers have not yet registered as service providers, so we cannot assure that they meet best practices. If you don't see a system that you use listed here, please encourage your vendor to become a registered service provider.
