What is a DOI?

DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier, a unique ID that corresponds to an electronic document such as an electronic journal article. Some citation styles include the DOI at the end of the citation.

What is a reference list in APA style?

The APA referencing style consists of a set of styling rules used by the American Psychological Association since 1929 to present written text clearly and consistently. APA style involves using a title page, sans serif or serif fonts, double spacing, one-inch margins, and page numbers. APA style also mandates placing in-text citations in author-year format e.g. (Abdullah, 2021), and a reference list starting on a new page. The most current version is the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual.
