Electronic Citation Persistence

The objective is to use and keep on using, a short simple meaningful hostname (internet domain name) for the research institutional electronic archive AND to use unique digital object identifiers for each digital item preserved, so that items cited or referenced using paper or electronic means can ALWAYS be found on the internet.

It is very important to avoid changing the internet domain name of the research institutional repository and also to avoid moving items between systems without due diligence as this will impact very negatively on the usefulness of electronic scholarly citations and the capacity of other electronic systems to automatically harvest the electronic archives data using programmed internet bots.

Therefore a simple and meaningful hostname (URL) is preferred. For example: http://scholar.sun.ac.za
