UT Austin now using EZID

UT Austin faculty, students, and staff can now request digital object identifiers (DOIs) and Archival Resource Keys (ARKs) for their research products  – articles, datasets, posters, etc. DOIs and ARKs are persistent identifiers that allow you to reliable point other people to your work – improving the research process and making it easier for others to cite you.

Requesting a persistent identifier is easy. Simply email utdr-general@utlists.utexas.edu and request your DOI or ARK. Not sure what you need? We can help with that too!

For more information about persistent identifiers and about EZID please see: http://ezid.cdlib.org/
