Why try Digital Succession Identifiers?
AUDIENCE: Tech savvy researchers interested in benefiting from new possibilities for some of their research documents.
SUMMARY: The Digital Succession Identifier (DSI) is a new kind of persistent identifier for bibliographic references. For research communication, a DSI provides novel benefits such as the identification of research documents that are amendable by the author. A DSI together with JATS XML can also provide a new combination of benefits found in traditional academic publishing, preprint servers and PubMed Central, while avoiding some of their limitations.
