Why DOI?

Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
  • DOI is a persistent identifier used to uniquely identify online publications in order to ensure they remain traceable, searchable and citable over the long term. Compared to other types of persistent identifiers, the DOI system is widespread and well established in the life sciences arena, and it provides widely accepted visible proof that a publication is citable.

How is the Oroboros Ecosystem involved?

In Jan/Feb 2019 an agreement for provision of digital identifiers is being concluded by and between ZB MED and Oroboros Instruments:
  • public foundation German National Library of Medicine, Information Centre for Life Sciences: Stiftung รถffentlichen Rechts Deutsche Zentralbibliothek fรผr Medizin, Informations-Zentrum Lebenswissenschaften, ZB MED
  • principal place of business: Gleueler Str. 60, 50931 Kรถln, Germany
  • URL:
  • ZB MED is a member of DataCite e. V. and a procurement agency for digital object identifiers (DOI names). By offering its DOI registration service, ZB MED facilitates and promotes not-for-profit online publications in the fields of medicine, health, and nutritional, environmental and agricultural sciences.
Oroboros Instruments
  • Schรถpfstrasse 18, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria
  • URL:
  • Oroboros as the MitoFit DOI Data Centre (DC) is entitled to assign DOI names to selected publications (particularly preprints) and abstracts.

Rights and obligations of Oroboros as MitoFit DOI DC

Oroboros as MitoFit DOI Data Centre (DC) is responsible for:
a. the storage and ensuring the persistence of the scientific objects
b. the provision of access, review process and maintenance of the Metadata
c. the quality control

Property and user rights

  • The registration of scientific content does not include any transfer or assignment of ownership of any Intellectual Property right (IPR).
  • The copyright remains with the authors or their institutions, as applicable.
  • In all other cases where copyright applies, DC warrants that it owns the copyright and intellectual property rights of the Metadata registered by ZB MED and is entitled to the registration of the objects. In the event third parties make claims against ZB MED or DataCite e. V. in connection with these rights, DC shall avert all claims against ZB MED or its cooperation partners and indemnify ZB MED and its cooperation partners for any claims by third parties which relate to any possible legal infringement through the storage and the distribution of Metadata, if the DC is at fault. This shall not apply, if the use of the Metadata by ZB MED constitutes a breach of the rights granted in the signed agreement.
  • ZB MED is entitled to integrate the metadata into ZB MED services, use the metadata and grant access to items of content by ZB MED services (e.g. cataloguing for ZB MED portals) or by the access services of cooperation partners.

DOI Name

Each DOI name is a unique sequence of alphanumeric characters consisting of two parts: a prefix (doi:10.26124/) and a suffix (mitofit:YY0001)
It has become common practice within the scientific community to mark various versions and parts of an entity in the DOI name.
Full-stops (.) are used to mark different versions of an object, e.g., 10.26124/mitofit:190001.v2
Slashes (/) are used to describe parts of an entity.
Never use umlauts or special characters because they have specific meanings in URIs and can lead to the incorrect resolution of the DOI name.
