Using the home page URL spreadsheet available above, URL-based links to specific pages can be created using the following algorithms.
Updated! In September 2010, Oxford Journals completed migration of its websites to a new platform hosted by HighWire press (known as 'H2O'). The updated URL structures are shown below. The previous URL format ('H1O') will be supported and redirected indefinitely but links should be updated where possible.
Where links to specific page or article types need to be constructed, the following URL algorithms are available.
1. For persistent linking, if an article has a DOI, the DOI should be used for links. DOIs for Oxford Journals can be looked up via CrossRef.
In order to link to Oxford Journals content using an OpenURL syntax, use the CrossRef OpenURL Resolver.
Please note that use of the previous Oxford Journals OpenURL resolver is deprecated in favour of CrossRef's OpenURL resolver.
If you are the administrator of an institution which has an OpenURL link server, you can add outbound OpenURL reference links to reference lists on Oxford Journals online. See the OpenURL for Librarians page for details on how to activate these links.
Title-level MARC records are available for download into library systems.
Oxford Journals deposits DOIs and metadata for our journal content with CrossRef. For an introduction to CrossRef services see the CrossRef Fast Facts page.
Anyone wishing to link to Oxford Journals content can query the CrossRef database using bibliographic metadata and receive DOIs for successful matches.
If you know the DOI of an article (e.g. doi:10.1093/nar/gkh704), simply append it to http://dx.doi.org/ to make a link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/nar/gkh704
Libraries can now look up DOIs or retrieve metadata from CrossRef for free.
Our journal RSS web feeds provide another method to receive Oxford Journals metadata and links. Find out more about RSS feeds and download an RSS OPML file on the Oxford Journals RSS web feeds information page.
From 14 November, our journals will be migrating to the new Oxford Academic platform. If your institution uses EZProxy, you will need to use the new exproxy.cfg file with the existing details of the Oxford Journals websites on your proxy server to gain access to both the existing and new platform. For more information, visit the Migration Information page.
