Can OJS use Handle.net prefixes,etc. instead of DOIs?
Is Anyone doing this? Why or why not?
We've been asked to look into using either DOIs or Handles for our journals and so far I see only references to DOIs and CrossRef, but it seems like a Handle system alone could be used for a similar purpose. The DOIs cost significantly more. We have several Digital Repositories (OJS, OCS, EPrints, ETD-db, etc.) and would like a simple all in one generic solution that is capable of handling several thousand "items" with little cost and we're open to running our own Handle server.
