Questions tagged [doi]

A Digital Object Identifier, or DOI, is a persistent means for identifying content online. They are commonly used with academic articles and allow the document to be found, even if its URL is changed. The DOI of a document does not change, and online databases store metadata, including location, of the document. Use this tag if your query is specific to DOIs.
