DOI = Digital Object Identifier
Use a DOI (if assigned to the article) when citing articles, whether accessed in the print or electronic form.
A DOI is a digital object identifier – a unique alphanumeric code that gives a persistent link to the web location for an electronic item, sort of like an ISBN. DOIs are commonly seen on current electronic journal articles, but are often also included in the print version of the article. You're more likely to see them on articles for the sciences than the humanities.
A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is preferable to a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) when citing an online resource.

If a journal article does not have a DOI, cite it as a print source -- i.e. you can end the citation with the page numbers.
You do not need to link to a journal's homepage, per the 7th edition. However, if an article is open access, you may choose to link directly to the article's full text. Please note that the journal home page is not the URL of the article you retrieved, nor is it the homepage of the library.

If you have more than one article by the same creator and from the same year (or all with no known year, n.d.), you'll add letters after the year to distinguish the sources. Works with no date will look like (n.d.-a), (n.d.-b), and so on (note the hyphen).
