What is a DOI?
DOIs (digital object identifiers) are unique alphanumeric codes assigned to each unique article, chapter, book, or other publication by publishers who cooperate in using the DOI standard. You will often find the DOI displayed prominently in the bibliographic information for a publication. Examples:
Type or paste a DOI (e.g., 10.1080/10496500802690544) into the text box below.
The structure for DOI links is http://0-dx.doi.org.library.uark.edu/[doi]. Example:
No full text? Don't give up! The Libraries may have the item in print or be able to obtain it for you through the InterLibrary Loan service. Be sure to check the library catalog, InfoLinks, under the journal or book name and, if in doubt, Ask a Librarian for more help.
