Since March 12, this year, the Revista Facultad de Ingeniería has been assigned an online ISSN (e-ISSN: 2422-2844), which can be seen at the top of this issue’s cover. Considering that digital publications are in state of tremendous growth, we hopefully expect our online journal to reach a broader spectrum of readership by having this identification, since our journal was only recognized by the printed serial number. With regard to digital publications, The Investigation Vice-rectory arranged with the Academic Council and the Superior University Council of the University of Antioquia the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for 21 journals of the institution, including the Revista Facultad de Ingeniería. Indeed, the current issue is the first of our journal containing papers identified by DOI. It is expected that the use of this alphanumeric string positively impact the visibility of the articles, authors and the University. Furthermore, another important advantage of the DOI should be noted: its interoperability, which is the ability to use this identifier for services outside the direct control of the assigner exchanging meaningful information; for instance, a user can search for a paper DOI number without consulting the assigner .
