FAQ

Is OSDG free of charge?

Yes. OSDG is completely free, and is made available to the research community through an open-source approach. We do not intend to introduce any payment tiers or subscription models in the future.

Do I need coding skills to use OSDG?

Absolutely not. OSDG has been developed to be quick and easy for anyone to use, regardless of their professional background or skill set.

Does OSDG retain access to uploaded files?

No. Our API is built to process the user’s request and then remove any trace of the upload immediately after the e-mail containing the results has been automatically generated and sent to the user’s inbox.

For more information about how we look after your personal data, please refer to our Privacy policy.

Why isn’t my DOI recognised?

There are several reasons why a specific DOI may be unrecognised by OSDG.

  1. Formatting. Please ensure that your selected DOI begins with a number and does not include any URL prefixes. An example of the correct format is as follows: 10.1579/0044-7447-31.3.236. DOIs that begin with a link (e.g. doi.org/10.1579/0044-7447-31.3.236) are not compatible with the current version of OSDG.

  2. Publication status. The current version of OSDG Beta returns SDG labels for peer-reviewed publications that can be found in Microsoft Academic. In the future, we will expand its coverage.

  3. Publication date. OSDG Beta may be unable to classify very recent publications.

If none of the above reasons applies in your case, please forward your query to our support team and help us to improve OSDG. In the meantime, please try pasting a fragment of your publication’s text instead.
