More specifically, we use a DOI suffix for our journal articles that is
related to the typical (journal, volume, page/article id) citation
triplet for our
articles. As Herbert points out, we use the DOI suffix as the oai
identifier as well
for our (mode 0) OAI services. In general, we find it best to have a
to cite or otherwise reference our journal article, to the point where
eliminated page numbers and replaced it with a 6 digit article id that
us to post articles one at a time online in advance of print and still
the print TOC ordered monotonically with the articles sort by subject
Most (almost all) other publishers have DOI's that aren't directly
to the article's final citation (only decided when the print issue is
and, thus, have opaque DOI suffixes...
One could I suppose use the full DOI (with the prefix included), but I
find DOI prefixes not very illuminated (10.1103 is ours) and would
rather have something better like oai:aps.org.
