The DOI® System ISO 26324

March 30th, 2016. It is with great regret that we note the sudden passing of Dr. Norman Paskin on March 27th. Norman's contribution to persistent identifiers and to the DOI System in particular is incomparable. He will be greatly missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing and working with him. Should you wish to express your condolences, please use the following email: condolences@doi.org.

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 Digital Object Identifier (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: https://doi.org/10.1109/5.771073) 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.
