Russian Open Medical Journal (RusOMJ) used a citation format based on four-digit citation identifiers (CIDs). The CID chosen for Russian Open Medical Journal is similar to that used by Chaos and Physical Review.
The structure of the four-digit citation identifier is defined as follows:
i) first two digits – indicate the issue number,
ii) last two digits – assigned according to publication order, within that issue.
An example of the correct citation format for an article in Russian Open Medical Journal is:
Ivanov A, Petrov B. Title of article. Russian Open Medical Journal 2012; 1: e0205.
In this fictitious example, the article by Ivanov and Petrov was published in Russian Open Medical Journal in Issue 2 of Volume 1, as the fifth article.
In the full-text PDF file available online, the CID appears on each printed page. Appended at the end of the CID is a hyphen followed by a consecutive page number. For the sample article above, the printed pages would carry this page numbering: e0205-1, e0205-2, e0205-3, etc. The hyphen and additional digits should not be used when citing or searching for an article.

The correct format for citing or creating a link to a document using its DOI is as follows: http://dx.doi.org/10.15275/rusomj.2015.0101
The DOI scheme is administered by the International DOI Foundation. Many of the world's leading publishers have come together to build a DOI-based document linking scheme known as CrossRef.
