The Digital object identifier (DOI) is a unique identifier attributed to every published electronic document such as research articles. The worldwide DOI database is known as CrossRef. The DOI is the best way to link papers in a web-page or in a curriculum.

For instance, the paper by Jeffrey Lin entitled A negative answer to a problem of Aldous on determination of exchangeable sequences published in 2016 in Electronic Journal of Probability has DOI 10.1214/16-EJP4403 (the part before the slash indicates the publisher). This means that it is available via This URL redirects to the right page on the publisher website. This redirection is handled by the CrossRef system.  The CrossRef database is updated by all the publishers around the world. By this way, if a publisher changes his website, he will update the CrossRef database and DOI users have nothing to do. This resembles in a way the Domain name system (DNS) used for the Internet protocol.

When Electronic Journal of Probability (EJP) and Electronic Communications in Probability (ECP) were launched in 1995, the DOI/CrossRef system did not exist, and the papers were using a university URL. More than twenty years later, all the papers published in EJP and ECP are stored and distributed by Project Euclid, and all have a DOI. If you would like to find the DOI of a paper published in EJP or ECP in volume 1 to 22 you may browse metadata pages in Project Euclid, or use this Javascript code.

Recently, in collaboration with Project Euclid, I have managed to add the DOI to the first page of the PDF file of all “old” ECP and EJP papers published in volumes 1 to 16. This was done on my Debian distribution using essentially the PDFtk utility.
