Find article

How to find an article

Search for articles in a database

There are hundreds of databases that index journal articles. Some databases include full text articles online. Some databases provide details about an article but don't provide full text, so you'll need to do some more work to find the article. Some databases concentrate on one subject area, while other databases cover a range of subjects.

If the database doesn't include the full text article...

Some databases provide details about an article but don't provide full text. Write down or print the details of the article including: author and title of the article; title of the journal; date, volume and issue number of the journal; page numbers. You can use these details to find the journal.
