DOCUMENT TYPE: Living Technical Specification

A Document Succession Identifier (DSI) in a bibliographic reference facilitates the long-term retrieval of a cited document from any compatible website. A DSI can refer to either a succession of document snapshots or a specific document snapshot. This lets readers discover document updates while preserving access to earlier snapshots.

This technical specification formally defines the textual format of a DSI and outlines the concept of a document succession.
