  • Fast assign fot DOI
  • Depositing system

2. How do I get a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for my material?

You must use a service offered by a Seo4U. Seo4U collects the source file (PDF, CSV, DOC, ODT, etc.), metadata, assigned DOI names.

To assign DOI you are asked to contact the Seo4U agency and fill the necessary data about your material and pay the fix DOI charge, that is equal to 0.5 USD.

If the backup is required (for journals, insitutions, laboratories etc) the mambership is will be requested. There is no difference, what the company revenue is. The memebership fee is equal for all entities – equivalent of 30 USD per year.

3. Where can I look up a DOI? Is there a list?

The DOI system does not provide a central search capability across all DOI names, but most web search engines will show DOI names in the results of a search by title, by name, or by topic or related terms.

Also search engine of the Seo4U can be used to lookup whether the DOI has been assigned by Seo4U or another agency. Simply enter the part of the DOI, contribor name, paper title and obtain all available results.

4. What can a DOI name be assigned to?

It can be any entity — physical, digital or abstract — that you wish to identify, primarily for sharing with an interested user community or managing as intellectual property.

 5. If I have assigned a DOI name and I make a change to my material, should I assign a new DOI?

This is not necessary. Just provide Seo4U a new source file, meta description and a new location of source (if applicable)

 6. Is the DOI system a standard?

Yes. The DOI system was created by the International DOI Foundation and was adopted as International Standard ISO 26324 in 2012. The IDF is the ISO 26324 Registration Authority. Compliance with the DOI Handbook ensures compliance with the ISO 26324 standard.

DOI names may be expressed as URLs (URIs) through a HTTP proxy server. In addition, DOI is a registered URI within the info-URI namespace (IETF RFC 4452, the “info” URI Scheme for Information Assets with Identifiers in Public Namespaces).

8. The International DOI Foundation is a membership organization. Who are the members?

The activities of the Seo4U are controlled by its members, operating under a legal Charter and formal By-laws.
