Click on the title of a record to view the full document details, with search results highlighted in yellow. Bibliographic data and links to copies of the paper are at the top, followed by the abstract. Below this is a list of keywords, depending on the source - for example, a document from Medline will have MeSH terms (keywords used for Medline indexing). Where they exist, a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) or PubMed ID will be given - these are stable unique identifiers for the paper. Funder information is also included if known, and may include the funder ID numbers, names of funding bodies, or a declaration statement.

A Digital Object Identifier (or DOI) is a permanent, stable link to a specific item online. It is more stable than a URL, as URLs can change, for example if an organisation re-structures its website. You might see the DOI in a reference list or bibliography, as it is a reliable way to locate articles online.
