The costs of registering DOIs with ETH Zurich's DOI Desk correspond directly to DataCite's cost model, we therefore refer to DataCite's website their blog on this topic. The annual service fee consists of the Organization Fee that all organizations have to pay and the DOI Fee which is tiered according to the number of DOIs registered each year.

We inform our members of any changes in the DataCite cost model as soon as possible. 


Please note: All direct members pay the DataCite membership fee of EUR 2000.- annually. ETH Zurich covers this fee for its customers. Our customers have to pay the Organization Fee plus the DOI fee. Additionally, ETH Zurich charges a minimal fee of CHF 180.- for administration and support.
