What is a DOI?
A DOI is a Digital Object Identifier. It is a unique set of letters and numbers for a specific article. The DOI identifies the article and also provides a persistent link to its location on the Internet.

stressful life events, and adaptive behavior in school age children: The role of
appraisal and social support. Journal of Traumatic Stress, 20(2),147-160.
If the DOI is available, it is required as part of the citation for a print or electronic article, according to The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. (2009). If the DOI is not available and a researcher has cited a journal article that has been retrieved electronically, the researcher must add the url of the journal's homepage to the citation.
