You need to work with one of our DOI Registration Agencies who offer services that allow you to register a DOI or many DOIs and metadata specialised to their communities. You can contact any of them to see how they can help you.
What is the DOI Handbook?
The DOI Handbook is the main source of information about the DOI® System. You can find the latest version here: https://doi.org/10.1000/182.
DOIs and the Handle system
We use Handle System technology for the resolution part of the DOI System. We believe it is the best infrastructure available today for managing digital objects. The Handle System was developed by CNRI and is currently administered and maintained by the DONA Foundation
In order to guarantee persistence, the DOI Foundation has built a social infrastructure on top of the technical infrastructure of the Handle System. Persistence is a function of organizations, not of technology; a persistent identifier system requires a persistent organization, agreed policies and defined processes.
