DOI® Name Resolver Button
Adding the DOI Name Resolver Button to your web browser Links/Shortcuts Bar will permit you to resolve a DOI that appears on a web page by highlighting it, and clicking on the button. Or, click on the button to display a text box into which you can type or paste a DOI name to resolve.
Internet Explorer for PC:
- Make sure that the Links toolbar is visible. (Right click on the toolbar and make sure that "Links" is checked.)
- Right click on this
DOI name link and select "Add to Favorites". (The link contains a script. Windows may display a Security Alert. Select Yes to continue.) Use the default name or change it, and from the 'Create in:' list, select the Links folder. 'DOI Name' will appear in your list of Links.
- Depending on your IE security settings, you may be asked to confirm that you trust the scripted window when you use it.
- Resolve a DOI name in a displayed document by highlighting it and clicking on the DOI name button in your Internet Explorer Links toolbar. If you click on the button without selecting a DOI name, a dialog box will prompt you to select a DOI name to resolve.
Test the button by either clicking on it and pasting 10.1000/261 into the text box, or by highlighting the string 10.1000/261 and then clicking on the DOI name button. Either should redirect your web browser to the DOI System Information Kit.
Firefox for PC or Mac:
- Use the View/Toolbars menu to display the Bookmarks Toolbar.
- Drag this
DOI name link onto the Bookmarks Toolbar. A 'DOI name' item will display.
You can now resolve a DOI name by highlighting it and clicking on the item in the toolbar, or clicking on the button and pasting the DOI name into the text box provided.
