Citing and using a Digital Object Identifier (DOI)

Creating a Digital Object Identifier Link

A DOI can be used to cite and link to electronic articles. A DOI is guaranteed never to change, so you can use it as a permanent link to any electronic article. An exemple of a citation using DOI is the following:

FRING, A. and MANOJLOVIC, N., "G2-Calogero-Moser Lax operators from reduction", Journal of Nonlinear Mathematical Physics, 13 (2006), 467-478. doi:10.2991/jnmp.2006.13.4.1

To find an article using a DOI

When you see a DOI refererence to an article on the internet, most of the times you can just click on the DOI in order to access the article (provided you have the needed access rights to the site where the article is located).

In case you see a DOI in a print document or when the on-line DOI is not clickable, and you want to access the article, please do the following:

Copy the DOI of the document you want to open (e.g.: doi:10.2991/jnmp.2006.13.4.1).

  • Go to : Enter the entire DOI in the text box provided, and then click 'Go'.
  • The document that matches the DOI citation will display in your browser window.
  • The DOI scheme is administered by the International DOI Foundation, and is based on a linking scheme known as CrossRef.

For more extensive information on DOIs, please see the CrossRef DOI-guide.
