DOIs (Digitial Object Identifiers)

If a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is listed on an electronic source, it is included in the reference.  A DOI is a unique alphanumeric string that is used to identify a certain source (typically journal articles).  It is often found on the first page of an article or may be included in an e-book record.

Example:
doi:10.1080/14622200410001676305
