A  Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is used to give an electronic document a unique designation. It is comparable to an ISBN (example of a DOI name:  10.3929/ethz-a-000565688). The DOI name is used for citing an object on the Internet. It is a permanent identifier which takes the user to the current version of the relevant web page and thus offers an advantage over citing by means of a (frequently temporary) URL address.

The DOI Management Tool is a web-based platform used to periodically harvest DOIs and metadata via standard interfaces ( OAI-PMH) and registering them with a handle server and/or the metadata repository of the British Library.

DOI 2.0 uses the  Lakshmi on JEE order-based framework where each operation is centrally processed by an “Order Management Engine”.

The DOI Management Tool is free software released under the  GNU Lesser General Public License.
