ARTICLE FROM A LICENSED DATABASE
- Generally, follow the INTERNET PERIODICAL format, unless the article has been assigned a DOI (digital object identifier), a specific number assigned to that particular article. Not all articles will have one of these.
- Also, add page numbers after the volume and issue number, since these articles were originally in print.

- If a reference you used does not appear on this sheet, consult the Purdue Online Writing Lab for information on how it is formatted: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
- For the most part, the entry for any source that does not list an author should begin with the article title, followed by its date of publication.
- Alternately, you can use Citation Machine’s automatic APA form to assist you!
