In an APA 7th edition reference, your DOI (Digital Object Identifier) should be formatted as in the example below:

Pederson, P.B., & Pope, M. (2010). Inclusive cultural empathy for successful global leadership. American
Psychologist, 65
(8), 841-854.

Note the following:

  • DOIs (and URLs) should be presented as hyperlinks
  • Because hyperlinks lead readers directly to the content, you do not need to precede them with "Retrieved from"

See the APA style blog, and sections 9.34-9.36 of the Publication manual, for more information and advice on the use of DOIs and URLs.
