Some tips to remember:

– Always click through to the webpage displaying the actual journal article to create your bookmark.

– When creating your bookmark check that the ‘Online Resource’ button is ticked. If it isn’t then make sure to tick the box.

– When prompted by the popup box asking which URL or link you would like it to use, always select the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) if offered or a URL that includes the text ‘stable’.

The University of Edinburgh also provides Searcher, a discovery service that you can use to search many of the Library’s online resources, including e-journals and articles, from a single search box.
