CQ Researcher is an unusual source because it's sort of both a database and a journal at the same time.  So the best citation format you should use is for a journal article, and the name of the journal is CQ Researcher.

Here is an example of a citation from CQ Researcher done in MLA, 8th edition style:

Hosansky, David. "Traffic Congestion." CQ Researcher, 26 Jan. 2018, pp. 73-96,
