Q. Can I find an article using a DOI?


A digital object identifier (DOI) is a unique string assigned to identify an article and provide a persistent link to its location on the Internet. In order to search for an article on the Internet, make sure the prefix http://dx.doi.org precedes the DOI. This will allow you to search it into your address bar, just as you would any other URL.

Quick Find does not allow you to search using DOI. However, if you know what an article's DOI is, you can track down other information, such as the name of the journal or article name, by searching the DOI on the Internet. If full-text access is not freely available online, this additional information will allow you to search Quick Find using the journal or article name.
