Q. How do I cite an e-book using the APA format?
To cite an e-book from a library database in your references list:
For the APA format, you don't include database information in your citation. APA also prefers a DOI instead of a URL. If you can not locate a DOI, you should put the homepage URL of the journal or book publisher. You can do this by doing a quick web search. Do not include the URL from the database.
