In March 2017, Crossref, one of the main sources for DOI URLs, changed the format of their link from http://dx.doi.org/10… to http://doi.org/… This changed format has begun to show up in OCLC and vendor records and should not be mistaken for an error. Further, Crossref is also encouraging its members to use the more secure https:// along with the abbreviated link. All DOI instances are backwards compatible and will continue to work indefinitely.
