We primarily publish peer-reviewed geoscience research and geologic maps, and plan to register DOIs for our past and future work.
However, we also publish general interest books and periodicals that are intended for an interested but non-technical audience (e.g. K-12 teachers, legislators, etc.). Generally, these publications do not have rigorous citations.
Our general interest publications contain up to date geoscience and could possibly be cited in academic research, but they really shouldn’t be considered primary sources, so that would likely be infrequent.
Should we register DOIs for these works? How have other publishers handled this?
