@socrates maybe you've addressed this before so sorry if I've missed it, do DOI links go against the no shortened links clause of the community standards?
There's still the issue of target obfuscation
Maybe a good policy would be to say that if one uses a DOI link, to clearly describe the destination in a manner that is human-readable (i.e. title, author, journal name, etc.), on pain of having the post deleted
And then if there's ever "DOI-gate," we change the policy
@drb Oh I understand & appreciate your identification of that tension in the policy!
It also led me to start thinking about how much user tracking may be associated with DOIs. More awareness is always a good thing.
And I didn't know about The Winnower before.
So today has already been very productive, although my comps prep hasn't gone anywhere yet.
On that note: *disappears for a while*
