What Is A Digital Object Identifier (DOI)?
What is a DOI? A digital object identifier (DOI) is a persistent identifier used in scholarly publishing to identify and link to a piece of work. DOIs are considered by numerous journals to be mandatory for citation and can be assigned to datasets, preprints, research articles, websites, and other scholarly works. Assigning a DOI does not preclude submission to journals. (see below) DOIs on Authorea are issued via Crossref with the following prefix 10.22541 and a unique suffix. On

Digital Object Identifier (DOI) Registration Failed
A digital object identifier (DOI) is automatically generated by Authorea once 'Create' is selected. Upon generation of the DOI, article metadata is deposited with Crossref. Because this process is automated, errors are rare, however, in rare cases, registration can fail. If DOI registration fails for your article, please email email@example.com.

What if my DOI registration is pending approval?
A digital object identifier (DOI) is automatically generated by Authorea when you publish content. Upon generation of the DOI, article metadata is deposited and registered with Crossref. This process takes a few minutes but in certain cases it can take longer, up to a few hours. So, if your document displays a box saying DOI registration pending approval please be patient and check back with your article later when it will display DOI and citation information.

Can I update my article after assigning a DOI?
The short answer: yes. Contact us and we can walk you through issuing a new version for your DOI.
