Include the DOI in the reference if it is available.
Effective March 2017, the recommended DOI display format looks like this: https://doi.org/10.1037/a0016372.
However, older formats such as doi:10.1037/arc0000014 or http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014 are also acceptable.
Pick one format to use consistently throughout a reference list.
If each issue of a journal begins on page 1, give the issue number in round brackets after the volume number. If the pagination is continuous throughout the volume, no issue is entered.
