  • DOIs

    Permanent URLs (DOIs) build stable, long-term access to information.

    Our system mints DOIs when they are not provided by a publisher. We will mint DOIs for content that is unique to the Institutional Repository, authored or sponsored by a Wesleyan-affiliated person, and intended to be publicly available. Contact your library liaison to discuss your options.

    We don’t mint for published journal articles and monographs. If your published piece does not have a DOI and you would like one, please contact the publisher to request they mint a DOI on your behalf. We will include the DOI of the published version when we host a copy in Digital Collections. We don’t mint DOIs for physical materials.
