If you are the primary depositor, the primary URL may be updated through usual means. If you need to update a secondary URL you’ll need to re-send the secondary XML file to us with the updated URLs included. When updating, note that we need the item label value and the depositor login to be consistent with those used in the previous update - this is how we know what URL to update.
You can remove secondary URLs by re-submitting your secondary URL deposit with an empty
<item/> tag. Be sure the depositor supplying the XML is the same depositor who submitted the initial registration. If you wish to suspend multiple resolution activity entirely, you may supply a “lock” flag to remove all secondary URLs and prevent future secondary URL updates. Details are available in our technical documentation.
A click on a multiple resolution DOI is still a single click and your resolution reports will reflect that. If you keep track of incoming traffic, multiple resolution clicks will be coming from an interim page instead of the DOI resolver. The interim page is hosted by Crossref (sample URL:
You can bypass the interim page by appending a label parameter to your DOI link. To force the DOI to resolve to the primary (original) host location, add the
locatt=mode:legacy parameter at the end of the URL, for example:
To force the DOI to resolve to a secondary URL, add
locatt=label:HOST-XYZ where ‘HOST-XYZ’ is the lable supplied in the secondary URL deposit, for example:
More information about the role of the DOI proxy in multiple resolution is available in our technical documentation.
Yes we do! You’ll need to supply a distinct URL with the appropriate country code - details are available in our technical documentation.
