That DOI doesn't appear to be valid: for example, the doi.org resolver
doesn't find anything for it (see, e.g.,
http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/insr.12087) giving the error you report.

If you go to the publisher's page for the paper [1] they give a
different DOI -- 10.1111/insr.12087 -- which seems to work just fine.

I'm not sure why the DOI on your copy is not working - it does seem to
go against the whole idea of DOIs...

Hope this helps,
