Citation Styles

DOI = Digital Object Identifier

Why use DOIs?

  • It makes citing easier for you, and finding references easier for your reader.

  • It's used for any digital object (articles, ebooks, standards, datasets, and more)

  • You can put a DOI into a Google search and find the article citation.

    • Try it!  
      Put this into your browser search bar:  doi:10.1080/10242690701505419

  • If you're referencing something you got from a subscription database, you don't need to worry about including the URL to the journal, just add the DOI.


Example:

Sanico, G., & Kakinaka, M. (2008). Terrorism and deterrence policy with transnational support. Defence & Peace Economics, 19, 153 –167. doi:10.1080/10242690701505419

 

Find the article, or find the DOI

Use this tool to find the DOI when you have the citation or vice versa.
