Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) are unique, persistent identifying numbers for a document published online. This module offers the possibility to receive DOIs for single WissKI entities.
Just install WissKI DOI on the Manage Extend and enter your credentials at Manage Configuration WissKI DOI Settings (WissKI section).
As soon as you installed the module there is a new tab called DOI in the entity menu. You can choose between two options. You need to set the right permissions, if none administrator roles should be allowed to request DOIs.
Get DOI for static state
This saves the current revision of the entity and request a DOI for this revision. No changes can then be made to it and the DOI always refers to this state of the record.
Get DOI for current state
This requests a DOI for the current revision of the dataset. If a new revision is created, the DOI automatically points to it. The content of the dataset can be changed at any time.
Edit and delete
You can edit the metadata of the DOI. If you are in Draft or Registered mode, WissKI fills the fields with the current local data; if you are in findable mode, WissKI receives the field data from the online repository.
DOIs have three states: Draft, registered and findable. Only drafts can be deleted, and registered and findable states can not reduce back to draft. Be careful here.
Beware: If you remove the module, the Drupal database table "wisski_doi" is also removed, so you do not see, which entities have already a DOI. Simple do not uninstall this module or backup the database table "wisski_doi" if you like to preserve a concordance.
