  • DOI stands for "digital object identifier"
  • DOI's allow identification of a specific document. This is particularly useful in the sciences and by government and non-governmental agencies as there may be evolving variations of an article or document and the DOI allows the user to differentiate between various versions
  • Not all publications have DOI's. If there is a DOI, it must be included at the end of the citation. The DOI is a relatively recent development and does not necessarily indicate that there is more than one version of a document.
