Before you can start minting DOIs you need to register with ANDS for a DOI Service Account. As part of the registration ANDS will set you up as a trusted client of the M2M service, and provide your AAF account user access to My DOIs - DOI Query Tool functionality within the ANDS registry.


Just like other ANDS services, service participants will have an opportunity to test the service before moving into production.  

Client Registration

A.    Test registration

  1. Discuss your intent to use DOI Service with your ANDS Client Liaison Officer, or contact services@ands.org.au
  2. When you think you are ready to test the service, provide the following information to your client liaison or email them to services@ands.org.au:
    • DOI Account Name - A name for the DOI account. Usually an organisation.
    • IP Address List - A listing of the IP addresses of the machines which will be used to mint test DOIs. Both single IPs and ranges can be submitted in a list by separating them with a comma. Ranges should be specified using a hyphen (192.168.2.0- 192.168.2.45) or by the CIDR notation (192.168.2.0/24 ). Note that the list of IP addresses is an optional requirement for registration and is not necessary if you only intend to use the manual minting functionality within My DOIs. For more information see the section on Authentication.
    • Account Contact Full Name - The name of a contact at your site ANDS should contact to discuss DOI related issues.
    • Account Contact Email Address - Email address for the primary contact. Group mailboxes are preferred over personal email addresses as they ensure ANDS has an ongoing contact point if a client's staff member changes role or leaves.
    • Top Level Domains - Comma separated list of top level domains that DOI URLs will be resolved under. Remember DOI URLs must resolve to a public landing page that contains information about the associated dataset and a direct link to the dataset itself.
  3. You will receive a notification from ANDS, either from your client liaison or from IT Services, when your organisation has been registered.
  4. You should receive the following information from us:
    • You're Test App ID (Application ID)
    • Your Test Client ID
    • Your Test Shared Secret
    • The technical document to guide you in setting up your Cite My Data client

B.    Production registration

When you are ready to start minting production DOIs:

  1. Have  the DOI Service (Cite My Data Participant) Agreement form signed by a representative of your institution.
  2. Send the signed participant agreement to ANDS:
  3. A scanned copy e-mailed to services@ands.org.au or to your ANDS Outreach Officer. 
    • NOTES: 
      • Please remember to complete Schedule A of the agreement. 
      • IT Services will need the scanned copy of the signed agreement only in order to switch your registration to production.
  4. If you intend to use IP addresses to authenticate with the DOI service. Request for ANDS ( services@ands.org.au ) to add the IP addresses of your production machines to your production account if they differ from your test machines. For more information see the section on Authentication.
  5. You will receive a notification from ANDS, either from your client liaison or from IT Services, when your organisation has been registered.
  6. You should receive the following information from us:
    • You're Production App ID (Application ID)
    • Your Production Client ID
    • Your Production Shared Secret

User Registration

My DOIs allows you to:

  1. View the organisation's DOI registration details (appID, IP address registered, domain, contact)
  2. List all DOIs minted (there will be separate lists for test and production DOIs (with the exception of some early adaptors who only have a single registration, in which case, their test and production DOIs are in one list).
  3. Manually mint a DOI.
  4. Update a DOI URL or metadata using the manual entry form or by updating the XML.
  5. Activate or deactivate a DOI (Note: IP address registration is required for this to work. Contact services@ands.org.au if you need this feature)

My DOIs - DOI Query Tool  user registration procedure:

  1. Talk to your organisation's DOI contact or to your organisations Outreach Officer regarding your requirement(s).
  2. Obtain approval from your DOI contact.
  3. Login to https://researchdata.ands.org.au/registry (this process will ensure that your AAF identifier is passed on to our system for authentication).
  4. Send the approval email from your DOI contact (or copy your DOI contact) to services@ands.org.au, copy your Outreach Officer, to request for access.
