How to obtain a demo account?

DataCite provides demo accounts for (we call it a sandbox) for users to test the DOI creation service through its Metadata Store (MDS). If you are curious about how the DOI creation process works this is a good place to start. Test accounts are for demonstration purposes only and are subject to deletion after a certain amount of time.

If you are planning on becoming a DataCite Member or User and you would like to prepare or test your integration in advance, contact us and we will provide you credentials to access the test environment.
