What is my capsule's DOI?

Code Ocean DOIs consist of the prefix  10.24433/CO.  and the capsule ID on Code Ocean, which is the portion of your capsule's URL after the word 'capsule' and before '/code,' 'metadata,' etc. An example Code Ocean DOI is  https://doi.org/10.24433/CO.0a812d9b-0ff3-4eb7-825f-76d3cd049a43.  

 Where can I find my capsule's DOI?

A published capsule's DOI is available in its metadata page, under the Basic Info section. This field will be auto-populated upon capsule publication. 

When are DOIs minted?

After publication. See: What happens after I click publish?

Can I ascertain the capsule's DOI before publication?

Yes, your DOI-to-be can be ascertained by combining 10.24433/CO. and your capsule's ID, as explained above. (There is some possibility that this will change during the verification process; if we email you a 'Review Copy' of your capsule that you then duplicate, the duplicated capsule will have a new DOI. But for most submissions, the DOI is stable from start to finish.) 

Are DOIs assigned at the capsule level or the level of individual files?

DOIs are assigned at the capsule level, encompassing code, data, metadata and environment.

If I update my capsule, will it get a new DOI?

Yes. Updating your compute capsule will yield a new DOI -- typically your previous DOI with a .v2 , .v3 , etc.  appended.

My DOI is very long, how can I shorten it?

http://shortdoi.org/ does the trick.
https://doi.org/10.24433/CO.b76bf4ef-9493-4293-8e42-d0aa182fbc5a, for instance, becomes https://dx.doi.org/10/cqsg.
