This link is to a help guide on LexisNexis Academic on how to cite sources. Since you didn't specify what style you are using, this may help as it covers APA, Chicago, and MLA. There are examples of different types of citations on this guide.
Another option is to use a citation management system such as RefWorks. This link is to a library guide that explains these systems. There is a tab specific for RefWorks. It is a fantastic system to use and students/faculty/staff have free access to it. Not only does it allow you to store all of your information in a "cloud", the system also has tools to format citations in specific styles.
Most databases such as LexisNexis have a button to export the articles you use to RefWorks. In LexisNexis, this button is located in the upper-right corner of an article under the search box. There are six icons there. The "Export Bibliographic References" button looks like an open book. Click this button and then choose "Export Using Refworks." The information will then be exported to RefWorks, which as stated above, has tools to prepare a bibliographic entry in a specific style. You can then copy/paste this entry into your paper.
