AIS will be implementing the addition of Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) into all current AIS Journals. DOIs are unique alphanumeric strings of characters used to identify journal articles, websites, or other items of intellectual property (typically in digital form).
Why use DOIs?
DOIs help to not only streamline research, but also help to alleviate issues with broken reference links. DOIs are considered persistent identifiers and are becoming standard for scholarly articles and data sets.
How to assign DOIs to your publications?
Adding DOIs to existing publications is easy.
Instructions for Assigning DOIs to Articles
