How do I cite something from the Access World News database in NLM?

Hello: MY PA244 class is searching the Access World News database found on Newsbank. They have to cite the reference and I need some clarification. I am using the NLM Citing Medicine format. Should they be citing this as a database(serial) found in chapter 24? Thank you Grace
