Look up a DOI

Need to identify a DOI? CrossRef.org's Simple Text Query web site allows you to enter citations and easily locate existing DOIs. (Note: Users have to register with a valid e-mail address first.)

What is a DOI?

A digital object identifier, or DOI, is a unique code assigned to each published article that helps to identify and manage the article online. The APA style guide now requires the inclusion of the DOI when you cite a periodical (assuming that a DOI is available). Some brief examples are below; for complete citation guidelines, consult the official "Publication Manual of the APA."
