How can I cite the text? Or: What is DOI?

The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) allows for the unambiguous and stable identification of digital objects. Thus the digital text can be reliably cited as a link even without the URL or other data. A digital copy for libraries is therefore unnecessary.
The DOI can be found in the bibliographical data and on the contents page.

What are the technical requirements? Or: What is an IP address?

Access is obtained by IP authentication. Your institution must have a fixed range of IP addresses so that we can identify it.
Each computer connected to the internet must have a unique identifier so that data can be sent to it. For this reason it is assigned an address consisting of four sets of numbers between 0 and 255. These four sets of numbers are normally separated with full stops. For example 192.168.1.32 would be a valid IP address. 
Computers which are permanently connected to the internet (for example over a dedicated line) are given a fixed address; computers which connect only transiently (e.g. over a modem) are assigned an address dynamically. For example T-online or AOL users get a new IP address each time they connect to the internet, which remains fixed only for that session. Each internet provider has a certain number (a pool) of addresses for this purpose. Larger institutions usually have several fixed IP addresses (an IP range). 
If you do not have a fixed IP address, please register with a user name and password.
