Researchers and DOI
As a researcher, are you often puzzled by not knowing how to find the article by the author and title only? Are you trapped in an awkward situation that your article could not be cited? DOI's convenient pointing link allows you to quickly find out the article's title, author, publisher, volume information, and even other relevant information about the object, such as all published versions of the article, other research papers citing this article, etc.
Whether you are an author of academic articles or an academic researcher:
DOI can enhance the dissemination and reputation of the article, so to greatly increase the reading and citation rate of your article!
DOI can streamline the cumbersome process of collecting literatures!

How to use DOI

The DOI itself is a series of numbers. It is difficult for users to learn information from the string. Rich information about the object has to be obtained through DOI's pointing link. There are the following two methods to obtain the information:

How to cite DOI

In order to solve the current disorder in the reference specifications of online resources, the DOI’s cross-media universality provides an easy-to-use format specification. The commonly used citation styles such as APA and Chicago have included a DOI field. When a researcher cites an article, the following citation styles can be used:
Wilens, T. E., & Biederman, J. (2006). Alcohol, drugs, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: A model for the study of addictions in youth. Journal of Psychopharmacology, 20, 580-588. DOI:10.1177/0269881105058776
Gueorgi Kossinets and Duncan J. Watts, “Origins of Homophily in an Evolving Social Network,” American Journal of Sociology 115 (2009): 411, accessed February 28, 2010, DOI:10.1086/599247
In MLA or other styles not having a special specification for DOI, it is recommended to display DOI in permanent links, such as name (e.g., DOI: 10.1086/599247). DOI:10.1086/599247

How to find the DOI of an article

The commonly used citation styles such as APA and Chicago have included a DOI field. When you write a reference, you must fill in the citation information in detail with reference to the citation style. However, the DOIs of many articles may not be displayed on the documents or webpages. Welcome to use the DOI object data query launched by Airiti DOI RA to find the DOI of the article, or to confirm whether the article has been registered with a DOI.

DOI shall change your academic research life

Quickly identifying information quality
The DOI registration is the responsibility of the publishing unit, which is equivalent to the strict professional certification, so that as a researcher, you can safely cite and use the article without further confirming the correctness of the source and the justification of opinions.
Simplifying the process of collecting literature and quickly establish research context
The DOI can point to the storage location of the object, and can also indicate the relevant objects. Not only can it quickly provide rich information, it can also allow researchers to greatly shorten the research preparation stage, and then to quickly establish the academic map of the research genres
Persistently effective link to keep information up to date
The DOI link has the changeable attribute. When the object has switched the storage location, the DOI can still guide you to the latest storage location, eliminating the link failure. No matter how long the object has been published, its important information can always been obtained at any time. Furthermore, information can always be kept up-to-date. For example, in response to the pre-print trend of current journal articles, publishers can replace the files with the latest version after publication, and users can use the unified DOI to obtain the latest and most correct version of the article at different stages of the article.
The depth of rich research materials
There are a wide range of contents, such as articles, statistical reports, images and graphics which can apply for DOIs, so that these cross-media files can be circulated in a common way. Thus, future researchers can reference from various multimedia materials to increase the depth and breadth of their research content.
Effectively collecting and preserving your papers and academic value
Your paper will no longer be lost due to the persistently effective link, so that academic value can be extended for a long time.
