A digital object identifier (DOI) is a unique alphanumeric string assigned to identify articles and provides a persistent link to its location. A DOI starts with the number 10.

  • Not all articles will have a DOI.

The DOI can be found:

  • At the top or bottom of the first page of the article near the copyright information:
    DOI in the Article
  • In the database search results or article record:

    DOI in the Database Result

If you already have the DOI, you can use it to locate your article:

1.  Advanced Search link under them main search box (in the Default OneSearch tab) From the top buttons select CitationLinker. Or from the main library home page use the Research drop-down menu, select Periodicals. Here you will find the same top buttons. Look for CitationLinker.

2. OR, add the DOI to the end of the following web address: http://dx.doi.org/.

For example: http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1541-0072.2009.00314.x
