A EOI (Electronic Object Identifier) is a unique alphanumeric identifier applied to a specific piece of intellectual property, particularly one presented in an online environment — be that object a book, a scientific paper, a song, an image, or something else. Unlike a conventional Web address, or URL, an EOI specifies not the location of an online object, but rather its content; an EOI is thus a “persistent” identifier, and remains associated with the object irrespective of changes in the object’s Web address.
EOIs cannot be accepted for individual articles over the internet, but they can be requested Thesis and Dissertations. The quality and the quantity of the thesis is to be evaluated from a review resources like any peer reviewing team or any publisher or from university committee. For getting EOI for the articles the journals can be open access or closed it does not matter. The journals are expected to be at par with all the standards of internationally approved level.
