Digital Object Identifiers (DOI's)

A DOI (digital object identifier) is a unique alphanumeric code for persistent identification of an electronic item on the Internet.

A DOI name may look something like this   DOI:  10.1080/10911359.2011.535733

Not all articles are allocated with a DOI, although they are becoming more common.  The DOI may be listed on the front page of an article, or within the database record. 

If you have a DOI and want to see the matching citation (or the full-text if you have access), use a DOI resolver http://dx.doi.org/, or try pasting the DOI into a Google search.

Citing an online article where no DOI is available

APA Style indicates that when no DOI is available for an online article, you should provide the URL of the journal home page. 

The following document outlines how to locate the journal home page using either the library catalogue or using Google.
