DOI for a book review or an introduction in a journal

Hello, I would like to know if there are any differences between how to apply for a DOI for a “traditional” article and a book review? And for the introduction of a journal issue?

Are there any specifications that need to be made in a DOI request for an introduction compared to a “traditional” article? And for a book review?

Thanks,

Hi,

Both a book review and an introduction to a journal issue would be registered as journal articles. Since we don’t differentiate between what is a traditional journal article and other content published in a journal, these would both be registered as journal articles.

I believe we have considered elaborating on the journal part of the schema so that there would be more types than just journal_article, so all the other things that go into journals besides research articles would be tagged appropriate to their content. But at the moment, this is not included in the schema.

Thanks!
