NamesforLife (N4L) automatically identifies biological names in Word documents (currently, validly published names of Bacteria and Archaea at all ranks, from domain to subspecies, as well as names for which a published genome exists; other terminologies are in the works) and provides DOI-based links to the N4L service. You can learn more about the N4L service at http://services.namesforlife.com/about.

How to use
To use N4L Linking, select N4L Matching/Linking from the Advanced Processing menu. The module looks for biological names listed in the N4L database. If it finds a match, it applies a character style to the biological name specific to the rank, and it also creates a hyperlink to the record for that name in the database.
For example, when the module sees this text:
However, a few species — for example, Thiomargarita namibiensis — are up to half a millimetre long and are visible to the unaided eye.
it applies the character style cite_n4l_species and this link to the text “Thiomargarita namibiensis”:
