Where to find the DOI

  • Usually located on the first page of an electronic journal article, near the copyright notice or near the author's address.
  • May also be found in the Full Record Display of an article in a database, with the field labeled DOI.
  • Use this format for DOI in your references: doi:xxxxxxxxxxx
  • Check Cross-Ref DOI Lookup.
  • If no DOI is located, provide the journal's web address, or the database "container," such as ProQuest, JSTOR, EBSCOHost, or ProjectMUSE, with the URL.
