WHEN TO INCLUDE DATABASE NAMES
Include database names, italicized, after the title, when the database is a specialized database that is not commonly subscribed to by academic institutions. For example, include the database name for Passport, IBIS World and Statista, but not for Business Source (Ebsco) or ABI/INFORM (ProQuest). Italicizing the database name negates italicizing the title. (APA, 2020, p. 297)
Include the publisher name, not the database name, after the title element. If the publisher is the same as the author, don't include (APA, 2020, p. 329). Do not italicize the publisher name. (See APA Style Data set references page)
Include a publisher, unless the publisher is the same as the author. (APA, 2020, p. 329) This may be the publisher of the site where the report is housed.
