Find a Journal in a Database

If we have online access to a journal in a database, it will appear under Full text availability for this item. Things to note:

  • Collection refers to the database through which we have the journal
  • Coverage refers to the years available for that journal through that database
  • Choose a database covering your article's publication year
  • To access the journal, click the title link next to the Journal field.

If the library has access to a journal, they will have links to the journal in different databases.

Search in Journal

After choosing, search within the journal for your article's title or browse by date.

  • Not all databases look the same.
  • The page about the journal will look different between databases but the process of searching in them is the same.
  • You can find the volumes and issues available for this journal in this database under All Issues. Most databases have a similar structure of organization for journal content.
