After reviewing the CrossRef and EZID fee structures with our Executive Team, we’ve decided to subscribe to EZID. A major factor in this choice is our recent commitment to minting DOIs for every record in ScholarWorks. With several thousand records now needing DOIs, we would have ended up paying a substantial amount with CrossRef’s per-DOI fee structure. EZID’s flat fee seemed like a better fit—simpler and more cost-effective for our needs. After exchanging a couple of emails and signing a service agreement, we are up and running. Our first DOIs will be minted this week!
