Request for DOI Search Support

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. You should add DOI search support! That way when I want to see a particular article, I don't have to waste time copying a title, then searching through all of the different results with the same or similar titles. If there was a way to take a DOI entered in the search box, find the provider, determine if the university has a subscription, then return the login link to see the article requested, it would save a little time.

Downloading a Fulltext Paper

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I am trying to download the fulltext pdf of my own paper, recently published in IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging 2013;(32)5:849-61 Detection and analysis of irregular streaks in dermoscopic images of skin
lesions.

However, I am now asked to log in or sign in to obtain my free copy, even though I have accessed it through the SFU library website. I have never had to do this before ---I often access this journal. Has something changed? What is the institutional log in and password, so I can access the journal article?
