APA 7 Citation Style: Database Article with More Than Three Authors

Students' guide to APA 7

URL or DOI?

When using journal articles from the WCCC databases, if there is a volume and issue number, you do not need to include a DOI or URL. 

If you do not have a volume and issue number, you need to include either the DOI or a URL to the database itself. 

So, if you are getting an article from EBSCO without volume and issue number and no DOI, you would include the following URL:  http://www.ebsco.com
