DOI is the abbreviation for Digital Object Identifier. It is a unique electronic address for an online document, e.g. a journal article. A document's DOI is a permanent identifier, and provides a more stable link than its URL.

You can use a document's DOI in internet searches to find specific documents, however you may not be able to access the full text if it is outside the University's subscriptions.

Some referencing styles now require the use of a document's DOI.

For more information, check the University's Referencing website.
