The University of Sydney Library can provide DOIs for objects that meet the criteria listed below.


DOIs can be assigned to:

  • Research datasets and collections, associated workflows, software and models
  • University of Sydney theses
  • Previously unpublished publications – reports, unpublished conference papers, creative works, technical standards and specifications. Note that items available elsewhere online can't be assigned a DOI from the University of Sydney Library.

The output and record must:

  • be managed by the University Library through the Sydney eScholarship Repository
  • be previously unpublished and/or not available elsewhere online e.g. ResearchGate or
  • be persistently available open access
  • be part of the scholarly record

The record must contain a minimum set of information including:

  • Identifier
  • Title
  • Creator(s)
  • Publisher
  • Publication year
  • Resource type

Note: DOI minting is currently done manually by Library staff so if you require DOIs for more than 5 items, please contact to discuss your request and an appropriate timeframe for delivery.

If you need further information or would like to get a DOI, please email
