Searching the DOI field

The Digital Object Identifier (DOI®) is a system for permanently identifying and exchanging intellectual property in the digital environment.

  • Enter a unique DOI code to quickly find a specific record.

  • Enter one or more codes connected with the OR search operator to find multiple records.

  • Enter partial codes and include an asterisk (*) wildcard at the end of the code to find multiple records with DOI codes that begin with the numbers that you enter in the search field.

Note: If you enter an inaccurate DOI number, the product may return unexpected results. Always check your query to ensure that the DOI number is accurate.

  • Enter 10.1002/ijc.25857 to find this specific record.

  • Enter 10.1016/S0140-6736* to find all records that begin with this DOI identifier.

  • Enter 10.1056/NEJMoa* OR 10.1016/S0140-6736* (both search queries contain right-hand truncation) to find all records that begin with either DOI identifier.

About DOI Numbers

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a character string used to uniquely identify an electronic document. It is similar to an ISSN that uniquely identifies a journal or an ISBN that uniquely identifies a book.

Metadata about the object is stored in association with the DOI name and this metadata may include a URL where you can find the document.
