From A DOI Primer at the APA Style Blog:

"To search for DOIs, use CrossRef. The free DOI lookup searches for DOIs using information such as article title, authors, and publisher information. Or cut and paste your entire reference list into the Simple Text Query form and CrossRef will return all available DOIs at once."  [The Simple Text Query form is free, but requires users to register.]
