For assistance with writing papers, make an appointment with:
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 sciences and social sciences. If you find a journal article that has as DOI, include that in an MLA 8th edition citation.
MLA, 8th edition example for an article found through a library database:
Cardanay, Audrey Berger. “Illustrating Motion, Music, and Story.” General Music Today, vol. 29, no. 3, 2016, pp. 25-29. Academic Search Premier, doi:10.1177/1048371315626498.
No DOI? No sweat! Just cite it without a DOI. If it is an article you retrieved through a library database, you can include a permalink instead.
