Create a Fabrica Account

To obtain a Fabrica account your organization needs to be a DataCite Provider or a Client.

If your organization is a Client please contact your Provider for account credentials. For example, the London School of Economics (i.e., Client) would need to contact the British Library (i.e., Provider).

If you are a Provider your credentials should have been provided during your onboarding process. If you do not yet have credentials for Fabrica, please contact us.

In both cases, please provide the following information for the new Fabrica account:

  • Your desired Provider ID or Client ID. This is a short string of initials that identifies your organization.
  • The name of your organization.
  • The name of a technical contact person responsible for the account.
  • The email address of the technical contact person. An organizational email can be used for this purpose. DataCite and system communications (including password resets) will be sent to this email address.

DataCite staff or your Provider will create an account for you. Your Provider ID or Client ID will be your user name. The email address associated with the account will receive an automatic email from the Fabrica system prompting them to set a password for the account.
