The NOAA Central Library has created a Publications Group a place for everyone across NOAA to share questions, concerns, best practices, and new tools for creating, editing, submitting, and sharing publications. This group is intended to be collaborative, with agenda items, presentations, and discussion topics coming from group members. All NOAA employees (federal or contract) are welcome to join. Meetings are on the second Wednesday, bi-monthly.

A digital object identifier, or DOI, is a persistent, unique alphanumeric identifier that provides a persistent link to an object (most commonly a document, article, or dataset). The NCL assigns DOIs to all NOAA Technical Memorandum that are submitted to the NOAA IR and will mint a DOI for other eligible NOAA publications, produced after 2015, including: NOAA Professional Papers, NOAA Atlases, NOAA Technical Reports
If you would like to request a DOI for your publication you can do so using our DOI Request Form.
