Queries the web service to get a short DOI such as 10/z7x from a canonical DOI such as 10.1145/2667317.2667332. Upon success, the short DOI is shown in a notification and copied to the clipboard.

Short DOIs are issued by the International DOI foundation and valid Handles in the Handle system. Each canonical DOI has one unique short DOI.
