DOI Numbers for Journal Articles
Some electronic content like journal articles are assigned a unique number called a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). The DOI gives a way to find an article. If a DOI is provided for a journal article, include it after the page numbers of the article as "doi:doi number".
If no DOI number is given, UWM WSH Library recommends that you make certain that you do not just copy the address from the search box, but rather use the perma-link from within the article because library databases require a login most URLs will stop working after the session ends.
If you do not have information such as an editor's name, a volume or page numbers leave those sections out of your citation.

Articles may also come from magazines or newspapers.
