About DOI Numbers

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a character string used to uniquely identify an electronic document. It is similar to an ISSN that uniquely identifies a journal or an ISBN that uniquely identifies a book.

Metadata about the object is stored in association with the DOI name and this metadata may include a URL where you can find the document.
