According to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.; APA) guidelines for citing sources, cite the DOI number whenever one is available. The DOI stands for digital object identifier, a number specific to this article that can help others locate the source. Include an issue number for the article only if the journal is paginated by issue rather than by volume. Although most journals are paginated by volume, you may find it helpful to consult the APA Style Blog's post, "How to Determine Whether a Periodical is Paginated by Issue."
Note also that Walden University allows students to use the new DOI format detailed in the APA Style Guide to Electronic Resources, but Walden will not require this new format until it is integrated into a future 7th edition manual. For more on citing electronic resources, see Electronic Sources References.
