--When referencing a print article from an online database, provide appropriate print citation information, by which helps to retrieve the print version if the reader has no access to the database from which the article is retrieved. At the end, the item number or accession number of database URL can also be included. However, APA manual does not require such information.
--If the cited database article is available in other places, such as a journal or magazine, the homepage URL should be included, which may need doing a web search of the article's title, author, etc. to find.
--For articles that are easily located, there is no need to provide database information. For those hard to locate, however, database information is needed. If the source could change, only use retrieval dates.
