We have just received our DOI prefix, for our institution. I am responsible, as the Editorial Coordinator, for 2 journals (Ciência da Informação and Inclusão Social) while our Research and Education Coordination has created other 3 journals (LIINC em Revista, Logeion and P2P), from research groups. All of them want to assign DOI numbers to their articles.
Since the other 3 are not my technical responsibility, I wouldn’t like to have them all in a single installation within the one I’m working on for the 2 journals I’m responsible, although the other 3 journals could/should be within a single install (as they may share users).
How does the DOI attribution really work? Won’t there be a confusion in numbers, even though they’ll have the same prefix?
Sorry for the dumb question, but, I haven’t had time to sort this out and need an answer quickly, as the other journals are pressing to assign the DOI’s to their articles…
