25 May 2020

On Wednesday 27th May 2020 from 10.30 am till 1 pm the use of EASY will be limited due to maintenance on our technical systems.

During this period, it will be possible to deposit your dataset, or to search for datasets and download files. However, Permission Requests can’t be submitted!

Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

During the maintenance DataCite has to transfer the metadata of over 77,000 records


DataCite is a leading global non-profit organisation that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data and other research outputs. Organizations within the research community join DataCite as members to be able to assign DOIs to all their research outputs. This way, their outputs become discoverable and associated metadata is made available to the community. DataCite then develops additional services to improve the DOI management experience, making it easier for our members to connect and share their DOIs with the broader research ecosystem and to assess the use of their DOIs within that ecosystem.
