How do I find the DOI?
Last Updated: Mar 14, 2023     Views: 253

The DOI, or digital object identifier, is a unique number given to some, but not all, scholarly articles. It is written in this form: 10.5465/amp.2017.0130.

A DOI can typically be found in the citation of an article, with the notable exception of EBSCOhost and ProQuest, which tend to list the DOI at the end of the article.

If you cannot find the DOI in the article's citation, you can also try searching for the item on Crossref Metadata Search.

If the item you’re trying to cite does not have a DOI, please see the Reference and Citation Examples from the Center for Writing Excellence (CWE).

If you have the DOI, you can enter it into the main search box on the library homepage to find the article.
