Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers in a global registry that assist in the citation, identification, and discoverability of research information. The ESO library has created a service to provide DOIs to departments within ESO. DOIs have been in use for articles in The Messenger since March 2017, and plans are underway to begin creating DOIs for datasets in the ESO Science Archive.
