The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is a recent addition to APA. The DOI is a unique identifying number that makes it easier and faster for a person to find an article. By pasting the DOI into a DOI registry (DOI.org or CrossRef.org), the article can be found quickly. However, whether you can access the article depends on whether Marquette subscribes to the journal or if the article is open source (free).
This function is most helpful to others looking for your sources quickly, not when conducting research.
The DOI may be found in different locations on an article. It may be at the bottom or top of an article, within the citation on the database page, or within the short citation on the database search page.
HINT: The DOI usually starts with 10, but some DOI numbers are preceded by http://dx.doi.org/ so they can be searched as a URL. Include this prefix in the citation if it is part of the database citation or on the first page of the article.
