"In general, it is not necessary to include database information.  Journal coverage in a particular database may change over time; also, if using an aggregator such as EBSCO, OVID, or ProQuest (each of which contain many discipline-specific databases, such as PsycINFO), it may be unclear exactly which database provided the full text of an article." (APA Publication Manual, 6th ed. 2010 p. 192)
"Some archival documents (e.g. discontinued journals, monographs, dissertations, or papers not formally published) can only be found in electronic database such as ERIC or JSTOR.  When the document is not easily located through its primary publishing channels, give the home or entry page URL for the online archive."(APA Publication Manual, 6th ed. 2010 p. 192)
