The DOI system provides a technical and social infrastructure for the registration and use of persistent interoperable identifiers, called DOIs, for use on digital networks.

Rightscom provides advice and management to the International DOI Foundation (IDF) on all issues to do with metadata relating to the Digital Object Identifier System.

Specifically we manage the DOI Metadata Kernel and Data Dictionary, requests for changes with proposals for enhancements to the XML schemas in which the DOI Metadata Kernel and Data Dictionary are expressed and undertake the mapping of terms into the Vocabulary Mapping Framework (VMF) hosted by IDF.

More information about DOI can be found here.
