Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
It is mandatory to assign a DOI to all the editions of the journal and each authorial article. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is used to ensure the citation references and links to the electronic documents. The DOI is a unique printed structural line comprised of a chain of alphanumeric characters. It is assigned to the document by the editor upon the initial electronic publication. The ID number assigned by the DOI never changes, therefore it presents an ideal means for creating a link to the document.
