Creating Stable URL's

Citing or linking with a DOI link

A digital object identifier (DOI) can be used to cite and link to electronic documents. A DOI is guaranteed never to change, so you can use it to link permanently to electronic documents.

To cite or create a link to a document using a DOI

  • Find the DOI of the article that you wish to link to
  • Prefix the number with http://dx.doi.org/

E.g. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/3025453.3025744
