"DOI" is an abbreviation for "Digital Object Identifier." A doi is a combination of letters and numbers assigned to a publication, such as a journal article. For example: 10.1037/a0028240.
The purpose of a doi is to provide a permanent way of locating the publication in case the website address (URL) changes. For more information please visit the online Bow Valley College Guide to APA Style.
