Google Scholar offers BibTeX citations for research items it retrieves, but the formatted BibTeX citation it provides does not include a digital object identifier, or DOI, for the research object described.

A better online service that allows retrieval of BibTeX-formatted citations with DOIs is

Enter a valid DOI in the form and a BibTeX-formatted display returns. The DOI can be from any DOI registration agency, be it CrossRef (mostly articles and book chapters), DataCite (datasets), or another.

The screenshot example below shows the BibTeX entry returned for a DOI corresponding to a dataset in the CaltechData repository.

Once the BibTeX citation is provided, be sure to save it to a desktop file with the extension .bib so it can be recognized as a BibTeX bibliography by LaTeX or RMarkdown, ORCiD, NSF, or other services that accept publication lists in BibTeX.
