2 Digital Object Identifier What is DOI? A unique identifier for "a piece of content on digital networks Digital object interoperability doi>

3 Description by structured metadata Resolution by Handle Numbering scheme Policies doi>

4 A unique identifier for "a piece of content" in the physical world single, common system: UPC/EAN Bar Code components: code writers, readers, policies, etc. many uses : once assigned, usable by anyone in chain wide community support made it work self-sustaining cost recovery model etc. standard – helps to integrate systems efficiently Analogy: the physical bar code doi>

5 "The DOI is the UPC (Bar Code) for objects of intellectual property on the Internet. 1. Uniquely identifies content –enables management of transactions of all kinds 2. Provides a stable, persistent link –to the content itself or to services 3. Can be used to articulate services as real world applications –using metadata, multiple resolution, rules, etc. What is the DOI? doi>

6 Show DOI as combination of components –use existing standards including Handle Show examples of services (applications) built on DOI –Examples here web–based –but DOI applicable to all platforms This presentation doi>

7 DOI syntax can include any existing identifier, formal or informal, of any entity An identifier container e.g / / / /ISBN /Norman_presentation / CENDI-DOI etc

8 Handle resolution allows a DOI to link to any & multiple pieces of current data Resolve from DOI to: –Location (URL) – persistence Resolve to multiple data: –Multiple locations –Metadata –Services –Nested DOIs (related objects etc) –Extensible: new types

9 framework: DOI can describe any form of intellectual property, at any level of granularity Metadata For interoperability Kernel metadata –A standard, interoperable, small set of data Able to use existing metadata –Mapped using standard dictionary Providing a standard way of accessing and using the object –Hooks to Open URL, UDDI, etc –DOI Applications, Services

10 DOI policies allow any business model for practical implementations Common rules of the road (IDF) –Governance and agreed scope, policy, rules Cost-recovery (self-sustaining) Registration agencies (cf ISBN, Visa) Each can develop own applications, services, sector rules, business model, fees, metadata etc –DOI at cost –DOI free –DOI with other services –etc

11 framework: DOI can describe any form of intellectual property, at any level of granularity Handle resolution allows a DOI to link to any & multiple pieces of current data DOI syntax can include any existing identifier, formal or informal, of any entity DOI policies allow any business model for practical implementations extensible

12 The combination of components is unique Aim to use existing standards or, if not available, to develop standards with others Numbering: standard principles (Naming authorities, delegated responsibility, uniqueness, non-intelligent numbering, etc) Resolution: DOI is a Handle implementation (Initially single, now multiple resolution; close collaboration with CNRI as technology partner) Metadata: indecs framework (Initially consortium, now ISO MPEG) Policies: based on similar business models (UPC, ISBN, Visa, etc.) doi> DOI components

13 Activity tracking Activity tracking Full implementation Full implementation Initial implementation Initial implementation Single redirection (persistent identifier ) Metadata W3C, WIPO, NISO, ISO, MPEG etc. Multiple resolution A continuing development activity DOI: development path doi>

14 Resolution provides persistence Easily seen in web applications - DOI never changes, but URL does: Persistent identifier doi> Handle resolution allows a DOI to link to any & multiple pieces of current data doi>

15 Content URL doi> Printed identifiers, bookmarks, etc doi>

21 The metadata component doi> Interoperability of data in e-commerce systems – a multi-partner effort: see Became adopted and now basis of ISO MPEG-21 Dictionary approach: see the paper Towards a Rights Data Dictionary Unique Identification Functional Granularity Designated Authority Appropriate Access Metadata as a relationship between two entities doi>

22 The metadata component doi> Precision – a consistent extensible framework, for automation Terminology – defined scope content more precisely –In relation to Digital Objects, W3C resources, WIPO works: –description by precise attributes, ontology Ability to interoperate with any existing metadata –SCORM, MARC, ONIX, etc Link to standards work like MPEG, XML A way of defining Application Profiles –sets of metadata plus rules, a way of grouping DOIs –the basis of applications beyond simple persistence –documentation now being completed doi> Why this has been important to DOI

23 framework: in DOI can describe any form of intellectual property, at any level of granularity Text objects (ONIX) Art objects (CIDOC) Learning objects (SCORM) Audio objects (GRID) Video objects (SMPTE) etc Metadata efficiency doi>

25 Adding value: services doi> Acrobat plug-in as focus example here (web based) Four example demonstrations shown here: –Version (provide a dynamic update version of the pdf in hand) –Multiple resolution (retrieve multiple data: a URL and some metadata in this case) –CrossRef (retrieve a standard set of metadata and use it in an application, a citation builder) –Rights (very simple e-commerce interface as an illustration) doi>

26 PDF Tool Bar Plug-In [ cache ] doi:10.123/456 Acrobat Reader Some Service Another Service DOI is not visible - within pdf package (like File/Properties in Word, etc) Buttons "pop up" dynamically as services become available doi> Adobe plug-in concept: what PDF document viewed through Acrobat reader doi>

58 Persistent identification –Not just a location –Permanent, trackable, name –Stays the same if ownership, location, control changes –No need to update customers if location changes Can incorporate existing identifiers –Standard e.g. ISBN, ISSN, ISMN, SICI, ISRC –Non-standard / public e.g. PII –Private e.g. workflow, internal production –Assigned by the publisher –or on his behalf Can interoperate metadata standards –Application profiles, kernel metadata, indecsDD Benefits of supporting DOIs doi>

59 Automated link from DOI to any (and multiple) points –Controlled by the assigner –e.g. Multiple locations; purchase options; additional info; access control can be made available and controlled globally by the publisher. Can be invoked globally by an intermediary, etc. Build your own custom features : entirely extensible architecture Generic applicability ; any form of intellectual property, any granularity (text, music, audio..) –Simple standard metadata associated with each DOI to ensure interoperability Conforms to, and works with, existing standards Using DOIs doi>

60 Promotes ready use of material in a legal, controllable, manner Proven, implemented, real system in use now –e.g. CrossRef: 160+ publishers, around 3 million DOIs per year since Jan 2001, around 2 million resolutions per month, supports existing businesses Demonstrated unique additional features –multiple resolution; DOI-APs –use of these limited only by your imagination Low risk –not a proprietary system; available at low cost –controlled by neutral, not-for-profit Foundation with single aim. –built on open standards. –comprehensive effort reduces risk of "dead-end": Asia as well as EU, US; multimedia e.g. text, music, software Business benefits doi>

61 IDF participates in other efforts W3C, IETF DRM activities PRISM, ONIX, indecs2….. ISO TC46, ISO MPEG NISO, WIPO, etc Music industry: GRID, CR Forum Content ID Forum (Japan) Indecs TV Anytime etc No one company can participate in all these doi> Leverage other activities doi>

62 if this is desirable, it must be paid for membership supports development until operating federation takes over community invests now to get benefit for all coordinated work to provide efficient operation ensure consistent deployment and avoid fragmentation prevent conflicts and promote efficiency outreach to other efforts doi> Why is support needed? doi>

63 Ensure the DOI is widely implemented –Existing applications need underpinning of consistent rules, infrastructure, and wide uptake Ensure Content community sets standards –Technology standards are not enough (Napster) –No other existing forum is doing this: W3C, OEBF, MPEG21 etc. all looking at parts DOI results from extensive work by AAP, IPA, STM (1997+) - a consistent development path IDF has strong position, and support. –Content and technology communities are represented Promote collaboration –interoperate with others; reduce costs, prevent mistakes –provide a common platform but retain ability to build added- value services. Benefits of supporting IDF doi>

64 Cost effective way of gaining access to expertise –Cost is equivalent to 2-3 man days per month of one consultant (even at highest membership level) –Detailed Monthly briefings on other activities (WIPO, W3c, IETF, MPEG, ISO, OEBF, SIIA, etc), and more expertise available on request Preferential access to business opportunities: –IDF makes connections between members and potential applications: explore at low risk possible business opportunities –Early access to results of prototypes, plans Share cost of development of prototypes –Costs can be shared by participants Influence the course of the IDF –participate in working groups, annual meeting, prototypes, board Benefits of supporting IDF doi>

65 An additional business opportunity for some members Build on the features and acceptance of the system –build on existing services or offer new services –management of content, management of metadata, etc. RAs may build as little or as much as they wish on this –simple assignment, through to a wide range of services RAs determine their own fate: –IDF provides federal structure for infrastructure, predictable costs and governance model –open market structure for applications Business opportunity is a shared risk: –DOI service supported by multiple RAs and multiple applications –Shared costs of the infrastructure –common infrastructure encourages common added-value tools Registration Agencies doi>

72 Imagine a country where nobody can identify who owns what, addresses cannot easily be verified, people cannot be made to pay their debts, resources cannot conveniently be turned into money, ownership cannot be divided into shares, descriptions of assets are not standardized and cannot easily be compared, and the rules that govern property vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood or even street to street. You have just put yourself into the life of a developing country or former communist nation doi> Our aim: Building infrastructure The Mystery of Capital: Why Capitalism Succeeds in the West and Fails Everywhere Else by Hernando de Soto (2000) doi>

73 One of the most important things a formal property system does is transform assets from a less accessible condition to a more accessible condition, so that they can do additional work. Unlike physical assets, representations are easily combined, divided, mobilized, and used to stimulate business deals. By uncoupling the economic features of an asset from their rigid, physical state, a representation makes the asset "fungible" - able to be fashioned to suit practically any transaction. doi> Our aim: Building infrastructure The Mystery of Capital: Why Capitalism Succeeds in the West and Fails Everywhere Else by Hernando de Soto (2000) DOI: provide the tools for representations of intellectual property doi>

75 Distinguish two issues: 1. The technical specification of what is a URN and a URI 2. What this means for practical implementation Internet standards: DOI, URN and URL doi>

76 See DOI handbook chapter 4 –4.9 DOI as a URI –4.10 DOI as a URN –equally true of all HDLs – DOIs are HDLs Aim: DOIs are persistent across time and unique across network space DOIs are URIs (formally draft specification) DOIs are URNs (in effect) URN and URI proponents disagree – the URN wars 1. Internet specs doi>

77 1. Internet specs doi> URNURL URI Resolution (N2L) (But largely from IETF, W3C did not see need for URN) urn: ftp: gopher: http: doi>

78 IETF formal spec URI scheme for Digital Object identifier –Paskin, Norman; Neylon, Eamonn; Hammond, Tony; Sun, Sam; Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme for Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs); (February 2002) An abstract specification (uri:doi:) –Would be doi: (like tel:) [uri: is not part of the uri spec, unlike urn:] May be a pure name or de-referenced by any service –The namespace provides its own mechanism (Bootstrapping) RFC 2396: UTF-8 encoding allows non-Roman characters On its own, its just a specification! Requires code distribution for any implementation DOI as URI doi>

79 URN is less clear: –Higher level situation muddy –Set of IETF drafts that define URN –Set of registered namespaces (e.g. isbn) DOI could be but isnt- no advantage Unlike URI, provides a specific DNS-based middle layer (RDS) to find the appropriate resolution service Scalability and security questioned; and: Little or no resolution implementation –Resolution proposed is one specific way: –NAPTR(Name Authority Pointer) turns urn:hdl: /1 into –Recently DDDS(Dynamic Delegation Discovery System): variant of NAPTR DOI as URN doi>

80 urn:isbn: can be defined ; but what does it do over and above isbn: ? –neither have a readily available, well known, global, resolution What if NAPTR were widely deployed? (5 years on)? Some advantage: could redirect from one URL proxy to another –urn:doi to redirect to But this is a regular expression: not software And still worries about DNS issues –Gratuitous use of DNS –DNS name servers are widely distributed – inertia –No security of resolution DOI as URN doi>

81 Persistence across time and network space desirable Do not want to bet on the URN logic of putting a resolution system in front of resolution systems –Especially the one proposed But –DOIs ARE URIs (formally) –DOIs ARE URNs (in effect) But: this is not the most important issue! 1. Internet specs doi>

82 Irrespective of all this URI/URN specification, DOIs are still needed, still useful, still valid A DOI is more than HDL –Adds Policy, business rules, business model –Adds Metadata specifications (cf ISBN, EAN, Visa) e.g. Mappings: –Ensures semantic integrity –A technical exercise: –A term is assigned a unique value in the iDD –Given a genealogy and ContextDescription –Other information added –A mapped term becomes part of the dictionary Hence will become more useful as it grows –Consensual between the two things being mapped –Painstaking, but once-only –Specialist services requiring intellectual input 2. Practical implementation doi>

83 On this topic, see DOI Handbook Ch. 3.6: Social infrastructure DOI Handbook Ch. 6: on The Handle System and using HDL without DOIs DOI Handbook Ch. 13: on RAs and using DOIs without RAs 2. Practical implementation doi>
