AIP does not regard EPAPS deposits as separate publications.  Instead, we
place a link in the article to the related EPAPS deposit(s).  It is also
possible for readers to access EPAPS directly, via the URL I supplied
yesterday ( http://www.aip.org/pubservs/epaps.html ), but we have never
thought to register these for dois.

By the way, AIP is engaged this very week in registering our entire online
collection, now spanning 1991 - 2000, with CrossRef.  We are also
registering the collections of 12 other OJPS publishers.  (The other two
OJPS publishers are doing their own deposits.)  When complete some time
next week, this process will add almost 200,000 articles to the CrossRef
Metadata Database.
