Create links to electronic journal articles using the 'OpenURL' standard.

IngentaConnect and a number of other electronic journal services use a URL formally known as 'OpenURL' to enable permanent links to articles in their collections.

The OpenURL standard provides a way of creating permanent links to articles in electronic journals that complements the Document Object Identifier method.

Complete the citation details and paste the resulting URL into your application (Blackboard, ReadingLists Online, web page, etc.).

You can find more details about OpenURL (also know as Z39.88) from the NISO website.
