Where do I find the DOI?

The location of the DOI varies. When using Discovery, check the article's record for the DOI:

Don't see the DOI? Here are some other places to look:

  • First page of the electronic journal article
  • Near the copyright notice
  • Database landing page for an article
  • Hidden behind a button
  • In the citation generated by the database

Be aware, not every journal article has a DOI. If no DOI is available, refer to your style manual.
