DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier. A DOI is a string of numbers, letters, and symbols used to identify content objects in the digital environment. A publisher would assign a DOI to a journal article made available electronically.

What is a reference list in APA style?

A reference list is a formatted list of all sources you cited in your paper. This means that anytime you cite any works or individuals whose ideas, theories, or research have directly influenced your work, you need to credit them in your reference list. APA is one of the most popular citation styles and was developed by the American Psychological Association to standardize scientific writing. It provides rules and guidelines as to how to format your reference list. All the rules of the APA style can be found in the current version of the APA Manual (7th edition).
