DataCite Commons was developed as part of the project Freya funded by the European Commission and will form the basis of new DataCite services. DataCite Commons makes PID services such as DataCite, Crossref, ORCID and ROR and their metadata and content available to a wide audience, and provides an open platform for further integrations with other services going forward. The work on DataCite Commons is part of the FREYA project that is helping build the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), funded by the European Commission. DataCite Commons fulfills the specific project goals of delivering one Common DOI Search for DOIs from all DOI registration agencies, and of providing an easy to use web interface for the PID Graph powered by GraphQL. The poster presents the current state of DataCite Commons illustrating its core features and statistics. Additionally screencasts of different usage scenarios will be provided.
