EZID (easy-eye-dee) makes it easy for you to create and manage unique, long-term identifiers (DOIs and ARKs).
EZIDs can be generated using a web form.
Browse the EZID website.
Members of the Caltech community can use EZID, free of charge, to create and maintain persistent identifiers.
EZID enables researchers to generate persistent identifiers (DOIs and ARKs) for just about anything. You can create one or more identifiers early in the research cycle, even before you've found a permanent home for the data, and then include the identifer(s) in data management plans submitted to funding agencies.
EZID is a simple but powerful tool to help you keep track of scholarly materials, including all your digital sources and research products: text, data, video, images, maps, spreadsheets and more. EZID's robust identifiers (DOIs) are reliable aids in data management, data sharing and citation tracking.
