Use this guide to learn how to find and download PDF articles using a Direct Object Identifier (DOI) or PubMed ID (PMID).
A DOI, or Digital Object Identifier, is a string of numbers, letters and symbols used to permanently identify an article or document and link to it on the web.
A DOI will help you easily locate a document. Think of it like a Social Security number for the article you are interesting in; it will always refer to that article, and only that one.
A PMID, also known as the PubMed reference number, is a number assigned by the NIH National Library of Medicine to papers indexed in PubMed. PubMed Central is an archive of full text journal articles.
If the article is available in full text you will see the option ARTICLE LINK under Full Text Format Options.
If you are off-campus you will be asked to enter your My NYIT username and password.
