Persistent Identifier (PID)

The GWDG hosts a service that offers to create a persistent identifier (PID) to a digital object. The service is part of ePIC, an international collaboration to build a trustworthy high-availability service.

If you want to use persistent identifier as a GWDG user on a occasional basis, we offer a service for the administration of single persistent identifiers. Even though the service is in demo mode, all PIDs created are persistent and editable in future. After the demo phase the service will be expanded by more functionalities.

If you have a project, where many persistent identifier have to be created, please send a request to
