A DOI is a "Digital Object Identifier" and it is a unique code that identifies a particular article (or other online reference). Most newer journal articles have DOIs, and they are used in APA journal article citations (rather than a URL or database name) to identify an online article.

If you have a DOI, use the DOI search box on the Journals by Title tab of the Library homepage to search for the article. You can also search on the DOI homepage to find the Journal Title and other article information and use that to search.
