I recently discovered that Digital Object Identifiers can be used for a lot more than just a reliable link to an article or dataset, and in some cases the DOI url's support semantic queries.

This article details an approach to access meta data and content from a DOI using curl, a command line tool and library. How can I access this data using Mathematica's functionality?

WRI has also been working to include citation management tools in the front-end. Is there already something like this built-in to deal with DOI's?


Using URLFetch with a specific header "text/bibliography" should return BibTeX citation data:

 "Headers" -> {"Accept" -> "text/bibliography"}]

By default in my Mathematica notebook, this displays in the following format:

Erdos, P. (2011). Some Problems On The Distribution Of Prime Numbers. Teoria Dei Numeri, 79â88. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-10892-1_3
