37 DOI – Digital Object Identifiers

If an article has a DOI (digital object identifier) include it in your reference list. Hyper-linked DOIs are useful for readers who do not have access to your institution’s subscription databases.

You do not have¬† to hyperlink the DOI in your reference list but it’s recommended. Adding the numbers after doi: to this hyperlink http://dx.doi.org/ will make a URL for a journal article or a publisher’s homepage. With a DOI you do not need to include database information or retrieval dates.
