Excluding things from the reference list

I'm wondering if it is possible to choose to exclude some parts of the references from the reference list? For example, say I'm using APA and I don't want the doi to be part of the reference in the reference list, how can I make this change for the entire list?
  • You would change the citation style to another one that fits your prerequisites or edit the citation style.

    Unless your journal or publisher specifically asks you to omit the DOI, then I would recommend against the no-DOI-no-issue version of the style. The DOI is the single most important part of the citation with regards to readers being able to locate the reference and publishers being able to accurately index citation metrics.

    there is a no-doi version for APA6 here: https://www.zotero.org/styles?q=apa
  • Thank you!

    It's in order to limit the word count, I'm asking for a colleague who would like for the reference list to take up less room.
  • The way to do this is to change the citation style, either by picking a different one (see the link in damnation's post) or by customizing one -- there's no other option.

  • If you are submitting to an APA Journal, though, they will send it back for the references style being incorrect.
