What is “doi” and why is it important?
Doi (Digital Object Identifier) is a unique alphanumeric string assigned by a registration agency to identify content and provide a persistent link to its location on the internet. Doi is often used to identify peer-reviewed journal articles, but it can also be used for books, book chapters, datasets, and other types of content. When used for journal articles, the doi typically provides a link to the full text of the article on the publisher’s website.
While dois are not always associated with peer-reviewed content, they can be a good indicator of whether or not an article has undergone peer review. To check if an article with a doi is peer reviewed, you can look up the journal in which it was published in Ulrich’s International Periodicals Directory. If the journal is listed as “peer reviewed” or “refereed,” chances are good that the article is also peer reviewed.
