Overview

Cite DOI was a template that was used for citing a journal article using its DOI number. When this was functioning, an editor could use the template with the DOI number, and a bot would then fill out the full reference. However, the bot created a separate template page for each individual citation in Category:Cite doi templates, and these templates were simply calls to {{cite journal}}. An RFC at this templates talk page concluded with the consensus that, because of these problems, this template should no longer be used.

Please instead use {{cite journal}}, which allows you to specify the DOI, then run the citation bot on the page. However, the Citoid feature, which is part of Visual Editor does this too, and there are also several third-party tools that do this.
