Types of identifiers as standard.

The unique identifier is really important. Today the most popular identifiers are used:

  • DOIs – assigned to individual articles at the point of publication, and by platforms such as figshare and Dryad to other outputs (including datasets, images, and more);
  • Handle.net identifiers – often used in institutional repositories
  • PubMedID – typically associated with health sciences research
  • arXiv ID – Physics, Mathematics & Computer Sciences
  • ADS ID – Astrophysics data system
  • SSRN ID – Social Sciences outputs
  • RePEC ID – economics research
  • URN (Uniform Resource Name) identifiers
  • ISBNs – books hosted on publisher domains and google books
