I like to know can i get the Publications ISSN form DOI link?

Or what is the fast way to find the ISSN of Publications to find its impact factor ( any online site to find the impact factor for DOI link or ...)

Update: (Solved)

According the anpami answer i have tried to do it for this paper, and don't find any ISSN number on the result:

And importing on this:

So does ISSN not exist for conference and only of journals or this answer is not correct?(Solved based on the anpami comment)


  • Thanks @Buffy, i updated the question and corrected it. – Soheil Paper May 25 '20 at 10:05
  • In your case, the paper is not a journal publication, but a paper presented at a conference. Conference proceedings, however, do not necessarily have an ISSN (see here: support.clarivate.com/ScientificandAcademicResearch/s/article/…). - And: You originally asked how to fetch the ISSN with the help of a DOI so as to get the Impact Factor. Note that conferences do not have Impact Factors, only journals do. – anpami May 26 '20 at 9:12
  • Thanks, @anpami, so i will add solved to last part of question. – Soheil Paper May 26 '20 at 9:20

To get the ISSN of a paper by using the paper's DOI, try CrossRef's API. Specifically, use the URL https://api.crossref.org/works/ and add the DOI to it.

For example, if the DOI is 10.1177/0047117819856397, then use the URL https://api.crossref.org/works/10.1177/0047117819856397

There is a branch called "ISSN" in that JSON-file. If the output looks confusing to you, copy-paste it into a 'JSON beautifier'.

(However, note that you cannot find the Impact Factor of the journal using this approach; as far as I know, there is no API for accessing an Impact Factor by using the ISSN as a key. Also see "Where can I find the Impact Factor for a given journal?")
