Check |doi= value

When Citation Style 1 and Citation Style 2 templates contain |doi=, a test is done to see if the prefix portion of the DOI value is correctly formatted and has what appears to be a valid registrant code. A proper doi prefix begins with the 10. directory indicator. The remaining portion of the prefix is a string of digits and the dot character which form the registrant code. When the directory indicator is 10., the cs1|2 templates test for a valid registrant code. Valid registrant codes:

  • must be composed of digits
  • must be in the range:
    • 1000–9999
    • 10000–39999
  • may have one or more subcodes that begin with a dot followed by digits (1000.10)
  • must not be 5555 (invalid/temporary/test)

Additionally, the |doi= value is checked to make sure that it does not contain spaces, en dashes, does not end with punctuation. Further validation of the DOI is not performed.

To resolve this error, ensure that the |doi= value is correct.

|<param>= requires |doi=

When any of |doi-broken=, |doi-broken-date=, or |doi-inactive-date= are used in a cs1|2 template, |doi= or |DOI= (with value) must also be present.

To resolve this error, either add the missing DOI or remove the 'broken' parameter.
