DOI numbers (Digital Object Identifier numbers) are unique numbers assigned by the International DOI Foundation. DOI numbers should make it easy for the reader to retrieve information about and the text of a document.
The URL where you retrieved the item could change. Therefore, it is not a persistent link to the source. The DOI number is a unique identifier that will always be associated with that particular source regardless of where the source was retrieved today (website, Holy Family databases, PubMed, etc.) or where it may be available in the future.
DOI numbers serve as links to the article when entered into a DOI resolver. See Retrieving Sources by DOI Number for more information.
If your source includes a DOI number, you must include it at the end of your reference.
NOTE: Crossref, which registers DOI numbers, has updated their guidelines to a new format. It is correct to use the old or new formats.
DOI numbers serve as links to source content. (The full text may be available for free or offered for purchase.) These DOI numbers help researchers to locate content quickly and efficiently. A researcher would then enter the DOI number into a DOI resolver in order to retrieve the item.
As a Holy Family student, you can access the full text of materials in a variety of ways. The DOI is important for proper citation, but you can use the research databases and journal locator to locate the full text of many materials. Ask a librarian for more help!
