Stable URL Locator

To link to full-text articles in Hartwick's subscription databases you will need to locate and use stable URLs (aka durable links or persistent links). The URL found in the browser address window will not work at a later point since these are only temporary URLs. The exceptions to this rule are Project Muse and Sage, see below.

These stable URLs are usually provided with the citation of a given article. The list below provides details on where to find these within a given database.

*Please note that to make these links available from off-campus you will need to add the following prefix in front of the stable (aka persistent) link found for the required article:
http://ezproxy.hartwick.edu:2048/login?url=
Be sure to delete any spaces between the prefix and the stable URL.


Databases

1. Ebsco (includes Academic Search Premier, Cinhal, PsycINFO, MLA, etc).
Find the link listed under "Persistent link to this record' at the article citation level. Note that the ezproxy prefix has already been added to these URLs

2. ProQuest (including Historical Newspapers on PQ)
Find the requested article and then look for link listed under "Document URL" at the article citation level.

3. JSTOR
Information is available on the citation page under article title and author. Copy and paste the complete link listed under the feature "Stable URL".

4. Project Muse
Once the article is found, use the URL listed in the browser URL window.
Example: http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/notes/v063/63.3stroh.html

5. ScienceDirect
Copy the link under the article title list as a shortcut not a straight forward copy - it should have the following format: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.bandc.2007.03.004

6. Health Reference
Copy the link under the citation that starts with the words "To link to full-text access for this article, visit this link:" - it should have the following format:
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.biopsych.2006.09.037

7. Art Index
At the bottom of the citation find the information "Persistent URL". Either copy the link or click to open the link which provides the need stable URL. that starts with the words "To link to full-text access for this article, visit this link:"

8. BioOne
Copy the link under the article title that starts with the letters DOI - it will read something like this: DOI: 10.1649/794.1.
To create the stable URL replace DOI with http://dx.doi.org/ so that it reads http://dx.doi.org/10.1649/794.1

9. ERIC (ERIC not through Ebsco)
Copy and paste the link for the full-text article - these are stable URLs. It follows the format http://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/contentdelivery/servlet/ERICServlet?accno=ED478764. The ED# at the end of the URL is article specific.

10. Lexis-Nexis
Go to http://www.amdev.net/lna_article_link.php to first find the right publication and then the desired article with the publication. 

11. Sage
Two options are available: A) Use the URL found in the browser window (http://est.sagepub.com/content/13/4/423.full.pdf) or B) Use the DOI listed on the right hand side column listed with the abstract. Create the URL as outlined in the example for BioOne (http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1368431010382758).
