What's a DOI?

DOI = Digital Object Identifier

This is a unique alphanumeric identifier assigned to some journal articles. It's becoming more common for journal articles in the social sciences. If you find a source that has as DOI, include that in an APA style citation.

No DOI? No sweat! Just cite it as you normally would.  Example:

Goff, W., & Veresov, N. (2015). Examining teacher-researcher collaboration through the cultural interface. Cultural Studies Of Science Education, 10(3), 621-627. | 503.943.7111 or 800.841.8261 | 5000 N. Willamette Blvd., Portland, OR 97203-5798
