The easiest way is to look at the publication information.


An ebook will have a publishing location and company just like a physical book -


Sanders, P. (1996). Bullying (What do you know about). Brookfield, CT: Copper Beech



An article will have a volume number and possible an issue number -

Shea, M., Wang, C., Shi, W., Gonzalez, V., & Espelage, D. (2016). Parents and teachers’

perspectives on school bullying among elementary school-aged Asian and Latino

immigrant children. Asian American Journal Of Psychology, 7(2), 83-96.
