About the link creator tool

Not all journals use DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers).

Many databases will provide a permanent URL even if no DOI is given on an article.

Both DOI and permanent URLs can be used in the DOI Resolver  to create a link that will provide access to an article on or off campus to USC clients.
