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.

This is our new meditation, prayer, nursing space. ​@katyehbooks talking to the 11/12s about The Truth About Twinkie Pie last spring​. Can't wait to welcome Kat back to Bank Street as our Dorothy Carter Writer-in-Residence this spring! Yay! #tbt Love this shot of Pres. John Niemeyer and his wife reading The Runaway Bunny, taken for Australian Women's Weekly in 1961 #tbt #bankstreetarchives Organizing Irma Black Award submissions! Wall tattoo. What a pleasure to listen to these two amazing women last night!! Childhood friends Meg Medina & RJ Palacio discussed their lives, families, work, and inspiration and how to offer hope and support to all right now. Just came across this quote from Lucy Sprague Mitchell in an old newsletter. "...I should wish to work along many lines to develop people who both understand and care about what happens to human beings everywhere." #tbt Happy Election Day!
