A Note on DOI
Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) have now been provided for all articles in all publically available issues of Cytologia, from the inaugural issue onwards.
You can view the covers of all archived issues of Cytologia by clicking
on the ‘Archive 2’ link on the Japan Mendel Society homepage. Click a cover
to view an enlarged version. Above this enlarged version you will see three
links: ‘On the Cover’, ‘Content’ or ‘Archive’. Click on ‘Archive’ to access
the contents page for the relevant Cytologia issue on the J-STAGE website.
This page will give the titles of each paper in the issue. Click on the
relevant title to display the paper abstract and additional information.
The yellow banner at the top of the abstract title indicates the relevant
volume and issue of Cytologia, and the page numbers of the paper, while
the relevant URL, including the DOI, is shown to the left below the yellow
For example, in http://dx.doi.org/10.1508/cytologia.76.111, 10.1508 indicates
the unique DOI code for Cytologia, while 76.111 indicates that the relevant
paper is on page 111 of volume 76 of Cytologia. The DOI for this paper
will therefore be as follows:
Similarly, page 119 of volume 76 of Cytologia can be accessed via the following
URL, which will allow the reader to access the required paper via the J-STAGE
Please note although that DOI codes are generated automatically, the DOI code can only be used to access the relevant paper on the internet around 6-12 months after the relevant volume has been published.
