What is a DOI?

A digital object identifier (DOI) is a unique string which permanently and unambiguously identifies the data resource and so assists with citation.

A DOI consists of a string of characters divided into two parts, a prefix and a suffix, separated by a slash. For example:

The prefix identifies the registrant (10.5285 is the prefix for NERC) and the suffix is a unique string identifying a specific dataset.
