Contact if you are interested in having a group account to assign DOIs to your datasets.

Data Repositories

Data Repositories by Discipline  on the Simmons College OA Wiki, the Registry of Research Data Repositories, provides a searchable database of repositories of research data helps you identify and locate online repositories of research data.  Users and bibliographers create and curate records that describe data repositories that users can search. DataBib is the editorial board of reviewers for repositories to be added to re3Data. DataCite, which mints and manages DOIs for datasets, develops
