What is a DOI?

A DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is a unique alphanumeric string used to identify journal articles, books, or other documents. When a journal article gets published, the publisher assigns a DOI and makes it available electronically.

What is a reference list in APA style?

APA stands for American Psychological Association and describes one of the most popular citation styles for scientific writing. APA style uses an author-date reference citation system in the text, accompanied by a reference list at the end of the paper. In the reference list, the author, year, title, and source of the cited works need to be listed in alphabetical order. If a reference is not cited in the text, it should not be included in the reference list. The APA Manual provides all the rules of the APA citation style and is currently in its 7th edition.
