What are DOIs?
DOIs provide the permanent location of an article in the form of a URL. The DOI system guarantees that links will never change, so authors and readers can rely on them to locate articles indefinitely. Many, but not all, publishers are including DOIs in journal articles. If a DOI for an article is not available, APA directs writers to simply include the URL of the journal's website in the citation.
