DOI or No DOI: What to Do?

The Library gets many questions about APA citation style, especially at the end of the quarter. While the Librarians are not APA experts, we do try to point you to helpful resources.

A question we get frequently is:

What do I do if I can’t find a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number associated with my article?

A new resource from the Online Writing Center’s APA Help Page is a handy Flow Chart that will help you decide what do with citations that do and do not have a DOI.

Print it out this one page chart and keep it handy!
