  1. Implement DOI system for OWW pages (complement existing Citation and Permanent Link features). Need to decide whether or not to use external service or register / implement internal service.
    • Jasonk 16:53, 26 July 2006 (EDT):'Need to address concerns that making everything "legitimately citable" will reduce the likelihood of contributions to the site. (e.g. I might be less likely to put up my lab notebook with preliminary results if I thought it could be cited with a DOI in a peer-reviewed publication). Don't know how widespread this concern would be, but Sri brought it up and I think it's a pretty good point. You could imagine addressing it by flagging pages as being citable, for instance, but the average page on OWW would not be.
      • Kathleen 17:02, 26 July 2006 (EDT): I agree with this point. Is there any way to make a section of OWW citable, like pages that constitute the "OWW journal" or similar such that users officially "submit" publications to these pages? That way, it will be a purposeful act that lands someone's information in the citable pages and less likely for someone to accidentally or unknowingly generate citable material.
        • Lucks 08:56, 27 July 2006 (EDT): This "OWW Journal" concept is very interesting for citation purposes, but also as an OWW domain that can be used for more 'finished' or 'polished' works. In an eventual publication model, perhaps OWW would always keep works in the "OWW Journal" section, and journals (Nature) would have a highlights page that would redirect to the OWW page where the article resides.
