Digital object identifier

Wikipedia defines a digital object identifier (DOI) as “a character string (a “digital identifier”) used to uniquely identify an object such as an electronic document. Metadata about the object is stored in association with the DOI name and this metadata may include a location, such as a URL, where the object can be found. The DOI for a document is permanent, whereas its location and other metadata may change. Referring to an online document by its DOI provides more stable linking than simply referring to it by its URL, because if its URL changes, the publisher need only update the metadata for the DOI to link to the new URL.

Citation mapping

Hart (1998) explains the usefulness of citation mapping and analysis in order “to map out the development of an idea, technique or theory“, which is an important aspect of a literature review. See also what Wikipedia has to say about citation index.

Google Scholar is a free tool to help with this. The paper by Noruzi (2005) gives an overview of how to use Google Scholar.
