Linking to Full-Text Articles for Course Pages: DOIs

About Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs)

The best and most reliable way to create a direct link is to make use of the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) from the publisher’s website. DOI is a de facto standard that cuts across most academic publishers.

However, not all publishers provide a DOI. The DOI is most commonly found near the top or bottom of an article; be sure to check both HTML and PDF versions.

How to link to an article with DOI

To create a link to any DOI: http://dx.doi.org/PUT_YOUR_DOI_HERE

For off-campus access, add the proxy URL: http://proxy.lib.uiowa.edu/login?url=

Examples
