How to reconcile prepub DOIs in OPS and published DOIs in OJS?

Hi @tmrozewski and @AhemNason,

My name is Isaac. I’m the technical support manager here at Crossref. Mike’s right about our thinking on preprints. Every new version of a preprint should be registered with a new DOI, since that version of the preprint should and will be cited differently than its precursor(s). And the preprint DOIs should not resolve to the final version of record of that article.

We do recommend that each of those versions be connected to the version of record, when it is registered, using the isPreprintOf and hasPreprint relations as documented here: Structural metadata - Crossref

And here’s an example of how that is reflected in the XML:

My best,
