A Digital Object Identifier is:

  • Made up of numbers and letters (ex. DOI: 10.1016/j.iheduc.2015.08.004)
  • A unique identifier for electronic articles


A DOI is not:

  • Assigned to every electronic article
  • A citation, rather, it is a useful part of a citation


*Note: Searching for a DOI in the library catalog does not always return results, though it is possible that we have the article itself. Google the DOI or use the official DOI Resolver to find full citation information.
