The problem below with DOI links has now been resolved and DOI links are working properly again.
This was a worldwide problem and it turns out the issue was that “somebody forgot to renew the dx.doi.org domain name” (come on we’ve all done something like that!) – details at: http://crosstech.crossref.org/2015/01/problems-with-dx-doi-org-on-january-20th-2015-what-we-know.html
There is currently a problem with DOI links (Digital Object Identifiers); the links are not working.
This is a global problem and is not only affecting University of Stirling.
The latest news is that this is related to a DNS problem, and that it should be fixed in a few hours.
DOIs are used in many different ways, for example, this problem will affect WebBridge and Talis Aspire reading lists.
There is a workaround but it involves human intervention on a case-by-case basis:
Go to: http://hdl.handle.net/ then to resolve the DOI enter the DOI in the search box.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused, but this problem is out with our control.
