Two comments about this journal, Zoologia.
1) The DOI number José sent out does not work, simply because the
journal is not up to date with its entries to the DOI registration
agency (I have logged an error report). The whole point of a DOI is for
quickly going to the article online. Please check a DOI supplied by a
journal is functioning before sending it to the list, and tell us if it
is not. It might be functioning in a couple of weeks, or a couple of
months, but that's no use to me now when the author has just alerted me
about the paper. It should be functioning at time of publication (If you
want it the plain url is:
http://submission.scielo.br/index.php/zool/article/view/37306 ). I
also note this journal wants to track usage of papers - the way NOT to
do that is to publish DOI that are not functioning.
2) They publish pdf's which are secured and not copyable - you can't
select text and paste it. This is highly irritating and quite pointless
- all one needs to do is print the article, scan and OCR it, and bingo -
there is the text available for quoting and other legitimate annotatory
& databasing purposes. Why the need to 'secure' it?
