Stable Links for Electronic Resources

How to create stable links for online journals, e-books, and streaming media

Taylor & Francis

To create a stable link using a DOI, you must first locate an item's DOI URL- this is usually listed in the article citation (see below).

 

  • Use the DOI URL provided in the e-journal for the article.
    • For example: https://doi-org.proxy2.cl.msu.edu/10.1080/10408444.2018.1563048
  • Remove .proxy1.cl.msu.edu (or .proxy2.cl.msu.edu) from the URL.
  • Change all to . in the base URL:
    • https://doi.org./10.1080/10408444.2018.1563048
  • ADD the EZProxy string to the front of the revised URL to create your stable link:
    • http://ezproxy.msu.edu/login?url=https://doi.org./10.1080/10408444.2018.1563048
