What is a doi number

What is a doi number?

  • Stands for Digital Object Identifier.

  • “…is a unique alphanumeric string assigned by a registration agency … to identify content and provide a persistent link to its location on the internet” (APA, 2010, p. 189).

  • Usually located near the top of page one of an article and on the longer view of the database entry.


More about the doi

More About the doi.

  • Don’t confuse the DOI with an ISSN number or an accession number. If you do not see the letters doi before a number, it is not a doi number.

  • If an article does not have a DOI, then use the URL for the periodical’s home page.
