Availability of Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) Enhanced in STN® Databases

May  19th,   2014

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are permanently assigned by publishers to many source documents referenced in STN databases. DOIs are unique, persistent, and provide a means to access electronic full text, including documents available via open access.

Effective May 18, 2014, DOI information will be included, whenever available, in the BIB (including IBIB and CBIB) and ALL (including IALL and DALL) display formats of the following databases, including their learning files:

  • BIOSIS®
  • CASM/CAplusSM family of databases/LCA
  • Embase®/LEMBASE
  • Embase Alert (file EMBAL)
  • MEDLINE®/LMEDLINE
  • SciSearch®
  • TOXCENTERSM

When available, DOI information can be consistently found following the Source (SO) field. To limit retrieval in any of the above databases to records with DOI information, include FTDOI/FA (or its alias, DOI/FA) in your searching.

Although the addition of DOI information to the BIB and ALL display formats has no impact on BIB and ALL pricing, custom displays of DOI information now carry a BIB charge.
