Resource of the Month: CrossRef

by Debbie

CrossRef is the official DOI® link registration agency for scholarly and professional publications. DOIs, or Digital Object Identifiers, are a way of linking permanently to articles online – CrossRef has a short Flash animation explaining them here, or for more information visit www.doi.org.

Also useful on the CrossRef site is the Simple Text Query, which allows you to enter a bibliographic reference and then gives you the DOI associated with that article. If you do not have a complete reference, you can try the other tools on the free DOI lookup page.
