Digital Object Identifier (DOI):

What is a DOI?

A DOI, is a number given to some electronic content such as journal articles. This unique identifier links the article to the web. Therefore, it is very important to use a DOI when available instead of a URL because while URLs often change, the DOI will stay permanent.
