A "Digital Object Identifier" is a URN that journal publishers are
starting to assign to published papers. These are used to identify
citations unambiguously and provide other nifty long-term advantages.
(DOIs are an application of the Handle System, developed by one of the
groups at my employer; see www.doi.org, www.handle.net, and
www.idf.org for more information.)
