DOI ("Digital Object Identifier") and PMID ("PubMed IDentifier") are unique identifiers or IDs.
DOIs, strings of numbers and letters that begin with "10." are created by the International DOI federation. Examples of DOIs are listed below.
PMIDs, strings of numbers, are created by the PubMed database which is run by the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Examples of PMIDs are listed below.
If you see a DOI or a PMID in a citation, you can type that information into the appropriate fields in the library's "Find an article" box to search for the full text.
