What is DOI?

  • A DOI is a Digital Object Identifier, one of the standards for online content identification that allows for redirection in the face of changing, or less permanent, URLs.
  • This is what a DOI looks like: (It is usually preceded by "doi:") 10.1000/123456 or 10.1016/S0006-8993(00)02382-8
  • If you enter the DOI into a browser all by itself, it won't work. To make it operational, remove the "doi:" and add the following to the front of the DOI: http://dx.doi.org/
  • When you construct a URL from a DOI, it will look like this: http://dx.doi.org/10.1000/123456
