You may notice that you can tell if the citation is for a book or an article by what a citation has or does not have.  If the citation is for an article, it will not have a city listed like the book title does.  It will also not have a publisher listed.  But, it will definitely have page numbers and a journal title.  

A book citation will not have volume or issue number listed.  It also will not have page numbers listed.
