DOIs & Stable Links

If you access a journal article online, you will need to provide a DOI. If your article does not provide a DOI, you will need to include a stable link to that article. A stable link or a DOI will consistently point to a specific information source such as an ebook, an article, a record in the catalog, a video, or a database.

Your completed citation should look like this:

Sophia Rosenfeld , "Before Democracy: The Production and Uses of Common Sense," The Journal of Modern History 80, no. 1 (March 2008): 1-54. doi: 10.1086/529076

Or this:

Lapp, Michael. "The Rise and Fall of Puerto Rico as a Social Laboratory, 1945-1965." Social Science History 19, no. 2 (1995): 169-99, Accessed May 2, 2017.  http://www.jstor.org/stable/1171509.

If your permalink contains http://ezproxy.lib.uconn.edu/login?url= (as in many EBSCO databases) you will need to remove that entire prefix, keeping the rest of the link.
