DOIs have now been attributed to all JOFDL articles.
What are DOIs and how do they work?
A DOI, or Digital Object Identifier, is a string of numbers, letters and symbols used to permanently identify an artefact, usually an academic article, and link to it on the web. A DOI allows readers to easily locate a document based on its citation.
When you cite an article on JOFDL you simply follow the following convention, this example uses APA7:
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of article. Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning, volume number, page range. https://doi.org/10.61468/unique-identifier
There are several organisations that manage the attribution of DOIs. FLANZ has registered with Crossref. We have joined as a Member directly rather than through a consortium.
If you have any questions about publishing your academic output with JOFDL please email either Dr Alison Fields (Alison@infosolutions.co.nz) or Dr Simon Paul Atkinson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
