According to the current MLA Handbook, p.188:

A work on the Web cited with print publication data. . . Following the print publication data are the title of the overall Web site, the medium of publication consulted, and the date of access . . . You may add supplementary information about the database or Web site (such as the name of its editor, sponsor, or publisher) following its name.

Therefore, first list the print journal data. 

For an example of this type of article and its citation, click on the link below. (If you are off campus, use your TigerID login to access the MasterFILE Premier library database.)

Now click on the "Cite" option in the Tools menu on the far right to see the citation for that article in various formats, including MLA. You should then use the library's MLA Citation Guide to complete your citation. (From the library homepage, click "Student Resources", then look for the citation guides under Research & Study).
