Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs)

Journals must meet the following requirements to be eligible to issue Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs):
  • The journal is based out of the Bloomington campus.
  • The journal is not a student publication.
  • The journal has been issued an ISSN.
  • The journal agrees to include outbound DOI links within article references. (That is to say, if a DOI exists for an article that an author has listed in his/her references, the DOI is included as a part of the reference. You might consider making this part of your submission guidelines for authors.)

...

  1. Contact IUScholarWorks.

    1. Email iusw@indiana.edu and let us know that you would like to start issuing DOIs starting with volume/number XXX.

    2. An IUScholarWorks staff member will configure the DOI Plugin and CrossRef Export/Registration Plugin in OJS for your journal.

  2. Check to see if DOIs exist for references in your upcoming issue.

    1. Go to http://www.crossref.org/SimpleTextQuery/.

    2. In the Registered email box, enter iusw@indiana.edu (or, create your own free account here: http://www.crossref.org/requestaccount/).
    3. In the main text box, cut and paste citations from a Word document. You may enter the entire list of citations at once; however, each individual reference should appear on a separate line. Because PDF documents preserve line breaks, we advise copying and pasting from a Word document whenever possible.
    4. Click Submit.
    5. Add any DOIs that are returned to article references. Make sure to display the DOI as a hyperlink by preceding it with https://doi.org/ (as in https://doi.org/10.14434/josotl.v14i1.3943). This form follows new guidelines for DOI display http://blog.crossref.org/2016/09/new-crossref-doi-display-guidelines.html.
  3. This step is different depending on whether or not your journal has a significant amount of back content. Journals with back content should follow the instructions under 3a. Journals without back content should follow the instructions under 3b.
    1. JOURNALS WITH BACK CONTENT: Create a DOI suffix for each article and add it to the article's metadata.
      1. Log in as Editor, then find the article you wish to add a DOI to.
      2. If you are not automatically directed to the article's summary page, click on the Summary tab. 
      3. Make a note of the article's accession number, shown below: 



      4. On the summary page, under Submission Metadata, click on Edit Metadata



      5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and add the DOI suffix in the box under DOI heading, following this construction pattern: (journal initials).v(volume number)i(issue number).(accession number). Example suffix: sfj.v3i1.9387



      6. Copy the full article DOI (including the prefix; ex: 10.14434/sfj.v3i1.9387) and article title onto a separate document.
      7. Click Save Metadata.
      8. Repeat this process for each article in the issue.
    2. JOURNALS WITHOUT BACK CONTENT: Preview and compile DOIs for all articles in the upcoming issue.
      1. Log in as Editor, then find the article you wish to add a DOI to.
      2. If you are not automatically directed to the article's summary page, click on the Summary tab. 
      3. On the summary page, under Submission Metadata, click on Edit Metadata



      4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and copy the DOI number listed under the DOI heading into a separate document.



      5. Repeat this process for each article in the issue.

  4. Add the full DOI to the galley file.
    1. Use the list of DOIs you created as a point of reference for adding the DOIs directly to your article files. (thumbs up) Tip: It is best practice to display the DOI as a hyperlink, for example: http://dx.doi.org/10.14434/josotl.v14i1.3943.  https://doi.org/10.14434/josotl.v14i1.3943. Note: Crossref has changed the display format, dropping the "dx" in the address and using only "https." See Crossref explanation http://blog.crossref.org/2016/09/new-crossref-doi-display-guidelines.html

  5. Publish the issue.
    1. The DOIs you assigned to your articles will automatically be registered in the CrossRef database upon issue publication.
