How do I cite an article or book I found in an OCLS database if it doesn't have a DOI? 

 

Finding a DOI

Use CrossRef to locate the DOI for your article.  

 

 

Using Academic Writer 

When filling out the form in Academic Writer, the DOI field in the Source section is not required. You can leave it blank.
