For items retrieved from a subscription database, add the name of the database and an accession number following the facts of publication, or whatever itentifying information is available in the database listing: a DOI for the article; the name of the database and the number assigned by the database; or a stable URL for the article.

Author Last, Author First. Title of Article. Title of Journal. Volume, issue number (year of publication): page range.
DOI or database name and article number or stable URL.
