The DOI is a system for interoperably identifying and exchanging intellectual property in the digital environment. A DOI assigned to content enhances a content producer's ability to trade electronically. It provides a framework for managing content in any form at any level of granularity, for linking customers with content suppliers, for facilitating electronic commerce, and enabling automated copyright management for all types of media. The International DOI Foundation, a non-profit organization, manages development, policy and licensing of the DOI to registration agencies and technology providers and advises on usage and development of related services and technologies. The DOI system uses open standards with a standard syntax (ANSI/NISO Z39.84) and is currently used by leading international technology and content organizations.
This is a service announcement for the International Digital Object Identifier foundation and has been prepared to increase you awareness about important developments to enable digital copyright management of intellectual property. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
To demonstrate the DOI System and its underlying Handle System® technology, DOIs are used to identify the IDF's papers and other published material. The underlined text linking to the documents contains DOIs embedded in URLs that are resolved using a proxy server. They work with any browser.
The small blue buttons -- -- accompanying those links represent DOIs. Navigating with DOIs requires that the CNRI Handle System Resolver web browser plug-in be installed on your computer.
