Article Identifier System

We use both DOI and HANDLE for referencing articles in the Journal.


Along with volume number, it may give you a means of unambiguous locating an article over the Internet. A HANDLE number is resolved just as a DOI, with the proxy URL https://hdl.handle.net/

If you see that an article has a HANDLE 20.500.12656/thebeacon.1.010100000, add it to the proxy URL and you will receive https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12656/thebeacon.1.010100000, i.e. the permanent link to the article in the Internet.
