Start by looking up the article or electronic resource with the relevant citation information, either from the Journal publisher's homepage, from our Journal Title Database, our list of Databases, or in our Discovery Search box (located under the heading "WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?") on our homepage.
Example using our Discovery Search box:
Start by typing or copying and pasting just the article's title. Switch the search type to Just Articles and by Title. If we have access, it should be in the first few results. Then click on the "Cite" icon for the article citation, and select a citation style from the pull-down menu. If the publisher has registered the DOI (Digital Object Identifier), the DOI should be listed as part of the citation. DOIs should be in the form 10.####/string-of-characters.
You may also try Crossref, and search for the article's title using the "Search Metadata"* box to find the DOI. If the publisher has registered the DOI, the DOI should be listed as part of the citation. *Note: You may need to disable Block trackers in some web browsers for Crossref to view this search box (e.g. Brave browser: set Shields Down for the Crossref site). Not every article or resource has a DOI; in this case, use a URL instead.
