  6. 6. Let’s begin
  7. 7. First steps • prefix and login • different methods to deposit metadata
  8. 8. Your prefix • One prefix may be used for all content • New titles may be added at any time • No limit to the number of DOIs created, also no minimum number is required. 10.4444 10.55555
  9. 9. Persistent identifiers • The DOI directory: makes the DOI actionable on the web • Prefix: assigned by Crossref • Suffix: assigned by the publisher Total DOI = routes through the DOI resolver to point to the registered URL
  10. 10. DOI suffix • consistent • simple • short More details:
  11. 11. Crossref DOI display guidelines • Always be displayed as a full URL link • An example of the best practice in displaying a Crossref DOI link is: • Old format was
  12. 12. Your landing Page • A full bibliographic citation so that the user can verify they have been delivered to the correct item • The DOI displayed as a URL, per display guidelines • A way to access full text: access to full text is completely controlled by the publisher but the landing page must be accessible to everyone.

  24. 24. Success! Your content now has persistent identifiers and a Crossref metadata record ??????? hooray! Failure…your content has not been registered.
  25. 25. Maintaining your metadata
  26. 26. What if something changes? • Change/correction to the metadata • E.g. author’s name entered incorrectly • Change to the URL • E.g. your publication moves to another website • Do NOT re-assign another Crossref DOI • There is no charge to update DOIs
  27. 27. How to update your metadata If there is an error or an update to your metadata: • Re-submit the metadata • if updating any of the bibliographic metadata, have to resubmit all the bibliographic metadata as a whole • supplemental metadata can be submitted separate from the bibliographic metadata but would be updated as a whole • For URL-only changes you can send a .csv file to our support team 10.5555/doi1

  28. 28. Next steps: reference linking • Reference linking means hyperlinking your references using Crossref DOIs (this is a membership obligation) • Readers can then follow a DOI link from the reference list of an article to the article on the publisher’s website
