DOI service levels and pricing
The DOI service is offered at three levels.
Any Stanford affiliate may request and obtain a DOI for a single online resource at no charge.
Any Stanford affiliate may request and obtain multiple DOIs for a set of online resources at a negotiated rate to be determined. This might be useful for an existing group of publications, such a series of technical reports, or datasets previously published by a research lab for a given project.
Any Stanford affiliate may sign up for an account under the Stanford membership, and then can directly and programmatically mint DOIs. With an account, you have direct access to many services and features provided by DataCite, including:
Dedicated, password-protected account
Modern user interface to create and manage users, to configure a custom DOI prefix, to register a DOI on demand, to access reports and statistics
Listing in DataCite directory
Access to the new metadata store (MDS) application programming interface (API) for system integration
DataCite’s technical support and extensive documentation
The cost of a subscription is $1500 per year.
The terms of the subscription service are outlined in this document.
