Great question! The NoodleTools Support Center has a wonderful explanation in the 24/7 Knowledgebase that you can find at the link below.

Basically, if you see print information about the article at the bottom of the article (i.e., the article shows an italicized title  between the title of the article and the italicized name of the database, then it does come from print, and you'll select Magazine as your citation type, then select:

  • Online magazine (e-zine) or printed magazine available from a database or Web site
  • Retrieved from an online database
  • An article
  • Enter the print publication facts

If you don't see print information about the article at the bottom of the article (i.e., if the article shows only the italicized name of the database) then it is original content created exclusively for the database and you should choose Online Database as your citation type. Next you select:

  • Yes, this is original content created for this database (it never appeared in print or another publication medium).
