APA prefers that DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) are used for article citations. DOIs can be found in the article record in the database or you can search on the article title in CrossRef below. (Note: Some articles--especially older ones--will not have a DOI.)
The American Psychological Association (APA) created the citation style you will be using for all of your research papers. You can buy the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition from Amazon.com or check the sites below for advice.
