Digital Object Identifiers: Stability for citations and referencing, but not proxies for quality | ReHub - Open Science | Scoop.it
exactly is a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and how does it help in the management and long-term preservation of research? Laurence Horton explains the basic structure and purpose of a DOI and also points to some limitations. DOIs are not the only way of providing fixed, persisting references to objects, but they have emerged as the leading system.

But who should be responsible for paying these new author-side fees? Stuart Shieber argues that those that fund research should be held responsible for funding its dissemination. As funders of research, universities themselves should be looking to organise an open-access fund that contributes to the establishment of the enabling environment for the open-access business model.
