How to create an account in Zenodo

Creating a Zenodo Account: A Guide for Beginners

This guide is designed to help students in Digital Humanities create an account on Zenodo, a platform used for sharing and preserving research data and publications.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Visit Zenodo: Open your web browser and go to Zenodo's website.

  2. Start the Sign-Up Process: Click on the "Sign up" button, usually located in the top right corner of the homepage.

  3. Choose a Sign-Up Method: Zenodo offers several ways to create an account. The most straightforward for academic purposes is to sign up using your GitHub account or ORCID iD. These methods help integrate your research outputs seamlessly with your academic profiles. Of these, the best is to create an ORCID account first and use it to sign in, since Zenodo provides an extra boost to material posted by people who have signed in using ORCID.

  4. Set Up Your Profile: Once your account is activated, log in to Zenodo. Navigate to your account settings by clicking on your profile name or icon at the top right corner. In the settings menu, you can add personal details like your affiliation (important for Digital Humanities scholars), areas of interest, and a profile photo.

  5. Understanding Zenodo's Features: Depositing Works: You can start depositing your research outputs by clicking on the "New upload" button. Zenodo allows you to upload datasets, research software, reports, and any scholarly outputs. Searching and Accessing Materials: Use Zenodo's search bar to find research materials relevant to Digital Humanities. You can filter results by type, access (open or restricted), and other criteria. Managing Your Publications: Keep track of your uploads, co-authored works, and projects through your Zenodo dashboard.


Creating an account on Zenodo empowers you to participate actively in the global academic community, sharing your research and accessing others' contributions. It's an essential tool for scholars in Digital Humanities, facilitating open access to a wide array of scholarly materials.
