The doi.org domain name was inadvertently allowed to expire for a brief period this morning (January 20). It was reinstated shortly before 9 a.m. as soon as the relevant CNRI employee learned of it. A reminder email sent earlier this month to renew the registration was apparently missed. We sincerely apologize for any difficulties this may have caused. The domain name has since been placed on automatic renewal, which should prevent any repeat of this event.

This is the web site of the International DOI Foundation (IDF), a not-for-profit membership organization that is the governance and management body for the federation of Registration Agencies providing DOI services and registration, and is the registration authority for the ISO standard (ISO 26324) for the DOI system. The DOI system provides a technical and social infrastructure for the registration and use of persistent interoperable identifiers, called DOIs, for use on digital networks.

Resolve a DOI Name

Type or paste a DOI name, e.g., 10.1000/xyz123, into the text box below. (Be sure to enter all of the characters before and after the slash. Do not include extra characters, or sentence punctuation marks.)

Clicking on a DOI link (try this one: http://doi.org/10.1000/182) takes you to one or more current URLs or other services related to a single resource. If the URLs or services change over time, e.g., the resource moves, this same DOI will continue to resolve to the correct resources or services at their new locations.
