Standard Identifier

This field lists the standard identifiers.

Standard identifiers help find the required data quickly and import the data directly from the Internet into the form.


  • DOI
  • Handle Number
  • URN
  • PubMed ID
  • Web-of-Science UT-Code

DOI (Digital Object Identifier)

A DOI is a direct and permanent identifier of a document on the Internet. You can find the DOI on the publisher’s website or on the publication itself (it begins with DOI: ..., doi: ..., or 10. ...). It assigns current, structured metadata to the document. DOIs are permanently linked with the object as an entity, and not just with the location of the object.

Instead of manually entering the DOI and the other required data, we recommend that you make use of the “Import data” function. Using the DOI, this fills out almost the entire form automatically.


  • 10.1080/10448632.2011.598804
  • 10.1016/j.nuclphysa.2011.02.117

Please do not enter “DOI:” or “doi:” before the DOI.

Handle Number

A handle number is a unique identifier for digital objects.

You can also enter the handle number here.



The purpose of a uniform resource name (URN) is to give an unambiguous name to a resource over its entire life span. A resource can also have several URNs. Since URNs are independent from the location and other properties of the resource (in contrast to URLs, for example), a URN can remain unchanged, even if the object’s location changes. At the same time, a new resource will always be assigned a new URN, even if its location is the same as that of other resources.

You can also enter the URN here.


PubMed ID

PubMed is a bibliographical reference database for biomedical literature from MEDLINE as well as journals in the field of life sciences and e-books. The entries contain links to full-text articles from PubMed Central and various publisher websites.
