Using Crossref to find DOIs


Mallard by DOI by Steve, Attribution License

In some referencing systems you need to provide the DOI or digital object identifier. Often when you download a citation into Endnote, the DOI will download as well. Most journal websites also have them listed with the abstract. However if you need to find DOIs for several references, going to each journal site can be very time consuming. Instead, use the Crossref website. Just copy and paste the reference, or part of it into the search box at the top of the page and Crossref will find the reference and its DOI.
