How do I correctly cite an academic journal article in APA style?
Purdue University's Online Writing Lab is an excellent resource for finding examples of citations in APA style. The precise format you use will depend on a number of factors, including how many authors wrote the article and whether the journal has issue numbers. You can look at some examples here: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html

I am researching Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell To Arms and need to find primary sources about conditions in World War I hospitals. Where can I look?
You could look in several places, depending upon what formats - newspapers, books, something else - are of interest to you. For contemporary news coverage of World War I's end, the website Chronicling America, created by the Library of Congress, offers historical newspaper content from American newspapers. You can find it at https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ If book length sources are acceptable, you might try Hathi Trust, a massive book digitization project that has created online copies of millions of books. Hathi Trust can be found here: https://www.hathitrust.org/ Lastly, if electronic reproductions of archival resources like letters, diaries, and historical records of interest to you, you could look at Digital Public Library of America, which is here: https://dp.la/ In any event, you'll need to think about search terms. Remember, many historical events did not receive their names until long after they ended, so when using Chronicling America or Hathi Trust, rather than searching for "World War I," try "war" and "armistice." Both also have publication date filters that will allow you to narrow your results to sources published shortly after the war ended in November 1918. More conventional search terms (like "World War I" or "Great War") might be fine for Digital Public Library of America. Take a look at those, and let me know if you don't find what you need in any of them.
To what extent did Bram Stoker base the character Dracula upon the medieval ruler Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad III Dracula?
Certainly Vlad III and Stoker's Dracula share a name, and the character's reminisces to Jonathan Harker of his "ancestors'" military victories combined with accounts of war given later by Professor Van Helsing seem to indicate Stoker did, if nothing else, use the 15th century Wallachian ruler as a historical personage around whom to create the villain. The fictional Dracula's personality and demeanor, however, appear to be much more influenced by the actor Sir Henry Irving, Stoker's friend and employer. According to several researchers, Stoker's fascination with Irving gave the actor an ability to influence the author in a way not completely unlike the fictional Dracula's ability to mesmerize humans. Other researchers find evidence of still other friends and acquaintances of Stoker in the Count, including one-time romantic rival Oscar Wilde and American poet Walt Whitman. The Dracula on the page of the famous novel is therefore an amalgam of a number of men.
