DOI Service (manual minting/My DOIs) or Handle Service (self-service tool)

Requirements

NOTE: Having a Data Source Administrator account in the ANDS Online Services does not give you automatic DOI or Handle Service user access. To request for access to either tool, please follow the steps outlined below.

How to request for access to My DOIs or to the Handle Service self-service tool (new users)

  1. Send an email to services@ands.org.au or to your ANDS Outreach Officer (for institutions) and request access to your institution's DOI or PIDS registration.

  3. You will receive an email confirmation from ANDS when your request has been completed.
  4. Test your access and inform services@ands.org.au when successful.

How to check your access:

  • DOI: Go to Identifiers > Digital Object Identifiers (DOI).
    • Enter your appID or select your appID from the drop down list from the DOI Query Tool window. Click on 'List My DOIs' button.
    • If you only have one application ID, you will be automatically redirected to My DOIs.
  • Handle: Go to Identifiers > Identify My Data (PIDS).
