The NOAA Central Library will assign a DOI to all NOAA series publications issued after January
2015. For more information about DOIs please contact the IR's service account firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to embed a DOI into your final version of your document prior to submission to the
you can request a DOI using the IR Submission Form.
If you are submitting a document using NMFS' Environmental Consultation Organizer (ECO), you must
also request a DOI through ECO and not through the DOI Request form, the exception being
pre-2018 Biological Opinions noting ‘pre-2018 Biological Opinion’ in the series name
and number field of the form.
Journal article DOIs are assigned by the publisher not by the library. If an
article has a DOI, it will be included in the record for that article in the IR.
