I have a BibTeX file with the following entry:

  title={The treatment of flat areas and depressions in automated drainage analysis of raster digital elevation models},
  author={Martz, L.W. and Garbrecht, J.},
  journal={Hydrological processes},
  publisher={Wiley Online Library},

I'm creating my bibliography with natbib:




You'll note that the DOI of the BibTeX entry contains some "bad" characters such as < and >. These should be displayed verbatim in the resulting PDF, but, instead, they are processed into large-angle symbols which cannot be copied and pasted.

How can I get BibTeX+natbib+LaTeX to give me my DOIs verbatim?

\usepackage{doi} will let you typeset all DOI's "verbatim". It will make them links as well.

  • Or you can use \usepackage{uri}

  • As @HarishKumar says, uri is another option. It seems to be newer too, so probably the preferred solution.

    Using the doi package with hyperref yields an option clash. Using uri with hyperref does not. If @amorua edits the answer to use uri, I will accept it.
