Persistent identifiers ensure the findability of your data, now and always.

Persistent identifiers (PIDs) ensure that the data's reference path remains intact, even if data location, URL or underlying infrastructure change. The most well known provider of persistent identifiers is the Digital Object Identifier (DOI). At DataHub, we offer a similar PID service, provided by SURFsara and the European Persistent Identifier Consortium (ePIC). The so called ePIC PID is assigned to every data set uploaded to DataHub.

Standard service

  • Every data set uploaded to DataHub automatically gets assigned with a PID.

Customization (mutual investments required)

  • Alternative workflows for PID assignment.
