Most online articles have unique, persistent digital object identifiers (DOI – say it dee-oh-eye, not doy) assigned to make them easy to find. If you’ve ever linked to an article from PubMed, you’ve benefitted from DOIs.
How do I find a DOI?
- It starts with “10.” and is usually indicated by “doi:” in the print or PDF version of the article.
- If you don’t see one, you can look it up at www.crossref.org/guestquery.
What can I do with a DOI?
- Find the publisher’s online version of a document at dx.doi.org/.
- Link to the TMC Library subscription to a document from their Citation Linker .
- Create a hyperlink to an article by preceding the DOI with http:/doi.org/
(e.g. http:/doi.org/10.1161/RES.0b013e318248ecf6 ).
- Import the citation into EndNote using the CrossRef connection file.
