Some citation styles ask for a DOI or digitial object identifier. Information on finding DOIs is available in the handout listed below.
Many electronic resources, such as the Libraries’ Databases, journal article websites, as well as Google Scholar, offer a feature to quickly create a citation in styles like APA, MLA, or Chicago. Refer to the Citation Generators guide for more information. You can also use a citation tool like to create a reference list/bibliography as well as in-text citations for your paper.
Use the information generated only as a starting point for your citation.
Be sure to check the accuracy of the citation for authors, journal names, capitalization, etc. as the citation is not always accurate.
