# doi problem with model3-num-names.bst of elsarticle

I am using 'elsarticle.cls', 'model3-num-names.bst' and 'numcompress.sty' mytex.tex goes as:

\documentclass[preprint,review,12pt]{elsarticle}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[nodots]{numcompress}
\begin{document}
\cite{bull_comparison_2013}
\bibliographystyle{model3-num-names}
\bibliography{mybib}
\end{document}


and mybib.bib goes as:

@article{bull_comparison_2013,
title = {A comparison of multi-scale 3D {X}-ray tomographic inspection techniques for assessing carbon fibre composite impact damage},
volume = {75},
issn = {0266-3538},
url = {http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0266353812004137},
doi = {https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compscitech.2012.12.006},
journal = {Composites Science and Technology},
author = {Bull, D. J. and Helfen, L. and Sinclair, I. and Spearing, S. M. and Baumbach, T.},
year = {2013},
keywords = {X-ray computed tomography},
pages = {55 -- 61}
}


but the 4 steps compiled pdf gose as:

Why there is a "\bibinfo{doi}" before the real doi? How can I remove that?

• Maybe try with doi = {10.1016/j.compscitech.2012.12.006},? If this does not help, please add a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB) May 23, 2017 at 14:49
• If I run your example, I get i.stack.imgur.com/Byd7C.png. (with the file from elsevier.com/__data/assets/file/0007/56842/…) Which tex distribution are you using? Which version of numcompress and model3-num-names.bst are you using? May 26, 2017 at 15:29
• With doi = {10.1016/j.compscitech.2012.12.006}, the output becomes i.stack.imgur.com/lrNZl.png May 26, 2017 at 15:33
