Article from Library Database or Internet Sec. 6.32:

If there is no DOI, then cite the homepage of the journal - search for it online.  A final

choice is to cite the database.  Many databases - such as ERIC and JSTOR - do not

use DOIs.  You can cite the database.  Do NOT cite the database vender such as

EBSCOhost.  You do not need to indicate the date you accessed it unless you expect

it to change. 

 

Rozmarin, M.  (2005).  Power, freedom, and

     individuality: Foucault and sexual freedom.

     Human Studies, 28(1), 1-14.  http://www.

     jstor.org

Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.  There is no clear formula from APA.  Check with your professor/ or publisher if the following formula is acceptable to them.  Be sure to locate the CD number.  If you are using PubMed, the CD number is located within the DOI.  If there is a doi, including the CD number becomes optional.  The issue number is necessary because Cochrane does not use continuous pagination.

     Yoo, J, Wieland, S,...Bouter, LM.  (2010).

     Osteoarthritis.  Cochrane Database Syst
