To go to the article on the web, put the following prefix before the DOI number.

For example, if all you have is the following DOI: 10.1111/j.1748-0361.2009.00256.x

the following web address will get you to the article web site.

If you are off campus, you will need to add the proxy prefix to authenticate to a subscription resource using UNC-CH library access.

Or to find out if UNC has access to the article, use the search box in the upper right of the E-journals Finder page. Click on the DOI/PMID tab, enter the DOI, click search.
