Doi Links on Wikipedia - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2016, written by Jiro Kikkawa, Masao Takaku and Fuyuki Yoshikane.


In this paper, authors analyzed Digital Object Identifier (DOI) links among English, Japanese, and Chinese Wikipedias (hereafter, enwiki, jawiki, and zhwiki, respectively), which possibly work as a bridge between the Web users and scholarly information. Most of the DOI links in these Wikipedias were revealed to be CrossRef DOIs. The second most-referenced in jawiki were JaLC DOIs, whereas those in zhwiki were ISTIC DOIs. JaLC DOIs were uniquely referenced in jawiki, and ISTIC DOIs tend to be referenced in zhwiki. In terms of DOI prefixes, Elsevier BV was the largest registrant in all languages. Nature Publishing Group and Wiley-Blackwell were also commonly referenced. The content hosted by these registrants was shared among the Wikipedia communities. Moreover, overlapping analysis showed that jawiki and zhwiki share the DOI links with enwiki at a similar high rate. The analysis of revision histories showed that the DOI links had been added to enwiki before they were included in jawiki and zhwiki — indicating that the majority of DOI links in jawiki and zhwiki were added by translating from enwiki. These findings imply that the DOI links in Wikipedia may result in multiple counts of altmetrics.
