Abstract:
As you may have noticed in the first issue of PLoS Biology and again in this issue, there are many places where an alphanumeric string appears after the letters “DOI,” such as 10.1371/journal.pbio.0000005 or 10.1371/journal.pbio.0000005.g005. Although some of you may already be acquainted with DOIs, others of you may wonder what they are, how they are used, and why we are using them.
