At Authorea we believe that research communication should be dynamic, allowing researchers to respond to feedback and reviews. Consequently, we believe that once a work is shared publicly and assigned a DOI it should have the ability to be updated.
At Authorea you can take advantage of versioned DOIs. Thus, the same publication that received a DOI can later be updated and receive a ".v2", ".v3" ... and so forth versioned suffixes of its main DOI identifier. As a consequence, each DOI will point to a "frozen in time" versioned link, so that we accurately preserve the scholarly record, while at the same time allow updating and correcting the manuscript.
