Where a publisher assigns a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to an article, we will include a link to that DOI in the OpenBU record, and clearly mark it as the publisher’s final version. This version may or may not be available, depending on whether the end user has access to a subscription to that journal.


Where a DOI or other unique identifier is not assigned but there is a URL for the article, we will point to that URL. We will try to the best of our ability to keep our links up to date, but cannot guarantee that they will work in the absence of a unique identifier.
