Total Resolutions:
calculating how many times each DOI was looked up
Average Resolutions:
the sum of article resolutions / the number of resolved articles
the process in which a DOI is in use to receive in return a piece (or pieces) of current information related to the identified entity: e.g., a location (URL)

What is a DOI?

DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier and is the unique identifier for objects on the internet. It can be used to create persistent link and to cite articles.

Using DOI as a persistent link

To create a persistent link, add"http://dx.doi.org/"before a DOI.
For instance: if the DOI of an article is DOI: 10.5870/airiti003
, you can link persistently to the article by entering the following link in your browser http://dx.doi.org/10.5870/airiti003
