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
Submitting DOI’s to the AIS Office
After accepted papers are formatted and assigned a volume, paper number, and month of publication by the editor. Editors or their staff will take the following steps:
1. Assign a DOI to the articles.
2. Place the DOI on the article abstract page after the abstract and
above the recommended citation, as well as at the bottom of the cover
page right after the recommended citation. *Please see a CAIS article
for an example.
3. Upload the articles into the eLibrary. IMPORTANT: Enter the DOI
in the DOI field when uploading the metadata. If this field is
missed, the DOI will not pull the eLibrary entry.
4. Complete the DOI spreadsheet. *Please use this spreadsheet for
submitting DOIs to the AIS office. DOI Submission Spreadsheet.
5. Submit DOI spreadsheet to AIS office via the submission form below.
They will not send copies of the articles and abstracts to the AIS Office;
however, they will submit the eLibrary link for each article via the DOI
Once the AIS office receives the spreadsheet, all DOI’s will be registered in Crossref. The AIS office will maintain a master list of DOIs, as well as enter all assigned DOIs into CrossRef.
If you have any questions, please contact the AIS Office.
