This week, the GCMAS was accepted by CrossRef as a DOI provider. DOIs – Digital Object Identifiers – are valuable to researchers and clinicians alike in that they enable one’s work to b e indexed and more easily found across the web. DOIs are intended to be permanent links to academic work be it abstracts, conference papers, journal articles, webinars, or regular papers.
CrossRef is a not-for-profit membership organization that exists to make scholarly communications better.
Our intent at GCMAS is to use DOIs to index our conference papers so that researchers can see what has come before, benefit from this research, and avoid reinventing the wheel. Attaching DOIs to our research also makes this work more publicly accessible and helps our members to more widely disseminate our work.
We’ll announce soon when our DOI server is up and running.
