Find Journals

Here’s how to go about  finding a journal article from a citation:

Sameroff, A. (2010). A unified theory of development: A dialectic integration of nature and nurture. Child Development, 81(1), 6-22.

Please note, the citation above doesn’t show a hanging indent 😦
step1

  1. Write the name of the journal in the library’s front page search box
  2. Select the Find Journals radio button
  3. Hit Go.

step2

You have some results – let’s see which option meets our needs: 2010, volume 8, issue 1, pages 6-22

  1. Yes
  2. Yes (it’s in print in back of the library)
  3. Yes
  4. Yes
  5. Yes
  6. Yes (the best overall option as there is no full-text delay)

I decided to go with Academic Search Premiere (but I could go with any of the other options). Drill down to the year, volume and issue you are looking for, click the link!

step3

OK, nearly there.

step4

  1. Check to see if this is the article you are required to read
  2. Click the PDF Full Text icon to start reading
  3. Great! There are options to save this article to Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive.

If you haven’t already logged into your cloud storage account you’ll be prompted to do this now.
