I use the authoryear style for Biblatex. For articles that have a DOI, biblatex+biber automatically produce the following in the bibliography:

DOI : 10.1162/qjec.2008.123.1.49

which contains a hyperref link to : https://doi.org/10.1162/qjec.2008.123.1.49

I would like to know how to change the style so that the DOI would also display the full link, that is, that it would display:

DOI : https://doi.org/10.1162/qjec.2008.123.1.49

and still link to the same URL https://doi.org/10.1162/qjec.2008.123.1.49

Thank you!

Add the following to your preamble after loading biblatex:



  • Is there a reason to prefer this over mine? Just curious.

  • @AlanMunn It looks nicer, I think. (Plus, it actually works ;-))

  • Yeah, I fixed the working part. But I don't see the aesthetic difference.

    @AlanMunn I prefer my solution because I don't have to go into an \if... branch that essentially does the same for both cases.
