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 😦
- Write the name of the journal in the library’s front page search box
- Select the Find Journals radio button
- Hit Go.
You have some results – let’s see which option meets our needs: 2010, volume 8, issue 1, pages 6-22
- Yes (it’s in print in back of the library)
- 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!
OK, nearly there.
- Check to see if this is the article you are required to read
- Click the PDF Full Text icon to start reading
- 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.
