Databases often include a tool to locate an article citation called Cite or Citation Tool. It will give you the option to select between the various citation formats, but be sure to reference a citation manual to make certain the content and format is correct!
Most databases provide a permalink that will bring you back to the same article. These are great to use if you are looking through many articles in your research. Create an Excel sheet or Google Sheet, click on the permalink (which will show up in a red box above the article title) and paste it into your document for safekeeping. This will help you organize your research! Usually the permalinks are located in the tool bar for each article.
