A service of The UC Davis Library

EZID makes it easy to create & manage unique, long-term identifiers for any research object.

  • create identifiers for anything: texts, data, bones, terms, etc.
  • store citation metadata for identifiers in a variety of formats
  • update current URL locations so citation links are never broken
  • use EZID's programming interface for automated operation at scale
  • choose from a variety of persistent identifiers, including ARKs and DataCite DOIs
