Adding a URL/ DOI at the appropriate times, depending on the source
We tell students that when they access one of our databases and export to RefWorks, then they can treat the journal article as a print copy – i.e. they don’t need to put the URL or the date they accessed it – see 1st ref example. If they get an article from Google Scholar, then they need to add the URL and the date they accessed it – see 2nd ref example.

We find that the RefWorks reference is quite hit and miss when it comes to this. When you export from EBSCO for example, sometimes there is a URL, other times not. Is this to do with whether the article has a DOI or not?
Was wondering about the feasibility of omitting the URL and date accessed if from one of our databases. And adding the URL and date accessed if exported from Google Scholar?
