Here is the newest list of data repositories and research infrastructures that have joined the DataCite Estonia Consortium. The regulations for publishing research data and registering DOIs may differ by different organisations, therefore you should check the publication instructions of the specific data repository.


The DSpace-based DataDOI repository is a platform for persistent storing of research data. If no other suitable environment that would ensure the storing of data (e.g. PlutoF or some other) can be found, the data are entered into Datadoi, provided with a DOI and interfaced via DataCite indexes to other similar data elsewhere. The preservation and access to the data is from then on guaranteed by the owner of the repository, the University of Tartu Library. Updates, conformity to standards, and exchange of data are guaranteed as well. The target group consists of single researchers and smaller subunits/work groups at the UT and outside.


Information system SARV was created for managing geocollections and for storing, systematising and analysing different geosciences data. It is used by the researchers, collections curators, students, etc. of TalTech, the University of Tartu, the Estonian University of Life Sciences and the Estonian Museum of Natural History. Most of the data stored in SARV can freely be accessed via public web-based user interfaces, e.g., the portal of Geocollections of Estonia, the register of Fossils of Estonia The electronically published geosciences data collections can be assigned DOIs via SARV, thus making the data persistently visible and accessible.


The PlutoF platform allows web-based entering, viewing and complementing of natural sciences data. PlutoF is suitable for storing the data on biosystematics, ecology, biodiversity, etc., from field work data up to molecular analyses. The data stored on the PlutoF platform can be made accessible for the public over the Internet. The system allows publication of the stored data by using the DOI system.


The Center of Estonian Language Resources (CELR) creates and manages an infrastructure that makes the Estonian language digital resources (dictionaries, corpora – both text and speech –, various language databases) and language technology tools (software) available to everyone working with digital language materials.
CELR registers allow the adding of DOIs to their language resources. Referring to the DOI of a certain collection of language data in other publications makes the data scientifically more trustworthy and enables more precise gathering of information about the usage of the collections as research resources.
In the DataCite MetaData search, these language resources are best found with the key word 'Estonian language', and more precisely, using the filter: datacentre -> ESTDOI.KEEL on the left-hand menu.

QsarDB QsarDB

QsarDB extends the value of predictive in silico models in chemistry and related areas via improving accessibility, transparency and reproducibility. QsarDB collects, preserves and distributes QSAR/QSPR datasets and models in QDB archive format. Every deposited item has a unique persistent handle which makes it easy to bookmark and share interesting information.

emu EMU DSpace

The digital archive of Estonian University of Life Sciences Library, EMU DSpace, maintains and provides access to electronic materials of the EULS.
