Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) in APA

Publishers assign a DOI when an article is published electronically.  This alphanumeric string enables users to access content through a unique and permanent internet url.  DOIs must be added to citations in APA.

Finding a DOI.

Usually a DOI can be found on the first page of the article. It may also be in the bibliographic record of a database.

If you don't see a DOI, check and search by the name of the author and the journal article.

Articles without DOIs

Include the url of the journal home page in your citation. If you found the article in a database and it is only published in that database, then you can add the database name and accession number or the database URL
