A DOI identifies an object permanently, even if the object changes its location, its owner or other characteristics. The DOI does this through redirection, using the Handle system.
The DOI enables the citability data object stored on SMIR. This permanent identifier (URL) takes the user to the current version of the relevant web page. The DOI's and meta data are registered with DataCite and are available for search.
DOI name is made up of a DOI prefix and a DOI suffix separated by a forward slash
